Here is another 6x8" oil painting I'm calling "Patience". This is currently on the wall of The Art House Gallery
on Cape Cod.
It was painted fairly quickly for me..there was a point where I was standing before it with my brush, looking for the next spot to paint and I realized it was done. It's always been hard for me to decide when a painting is complete, I've ruined many by over working them. The great painter William Merritt Chase once said, "It takes two to paint. One to paint, the other to stand by with an axe to kill him before he spoils it."
