"Helping With the Ribbon" (sold)

Oil on Board

Whew!! Finished! This is one of those paintings that I was SO excited about because I love the image so much, and, experienced the equivalent anxiety of whether or not I would be able to paint it! I like it. I am very pleased. It was a learning experience as I mentioned in my last post--all those whites!

Wow - you should be proud of this one. The quality of light you have captured is just exceptional, and you have made the whites look so interesting. Don't let this one go!

It's wonderful. I can totally identify with those apprehensions about making a piece, especially after the initial excitement about the project wears off a bit.

For me, that's when the hard work really begins.

I'm so glad it turned out for you the way you'd envisioned it. That's a great accomplishment for any artist!
