Gerbera Daisy

Recently finished, may do a little touching up. Once again some things I like, some I don't.

I wonder, will I ever be totally happy with a painting. I think I'm still trying to find myself as a painter. Or maybe I'm just too hard on myself. 

Ok Chris, snap out of it. Too much self-indulgent introspection. Get back to work.

  1. Chris I think even the old masters had the same problem. Its tough to figure out sometimes just what we want to see in a painting isn't it?

  2. Yes it is. I mentioned in my most recent post how I'm struggling to figure out just how far to take it in terms of finish.

    BTW, I think the Road runner looks great. I think your painting gets better each time I see it.

  3. Sometimes I don't think the paintings are ever finished.. Then there are the ones that were 'Over Finished' ::Sigh::
    Thanks.. I'm still learning. Seems like I just get the hang of something and have to learn about what comes next. Yours are always so painterly and have essence. One day I may tackle portraits.
