This is the second and the last painting of Olive. She goes home in a couple of days. There is something to be said about actually having this little girl on site when painting. The colors can be more vibrant. The problem is, I'm always seeing more I want to put down.
A quote by S.D. Chrostowska, "Among the untaught and unteachable skills that serve to illuminate art we can count the sense of completion: knowing exactly when to step back from a work." I have to thank my husband again for this quote and he reminds me that no matter what form of art you engage in, the importance is knowing when to stop.
