Summer Cone Flowers

Recently I was going through my studio trying to organize a bit.  My studio used to be the dining room, which is great in that it's "right there"  ie: close so I can always run right in and get to work.  But, there isn't a closet, so everything is "right there"  ie:  right in front of me.  If I don't keep up with the putting away and always organizing, it can get a bit messy.  My studio is also my office, it's also where I frame, pack and store all of my painting supplies.  There's a lot going on in one room.

Anyway, I was going through unfinished paintings. This one was hardly even started.  This was from a summer plein air day and all I'd done was sketch in the flowers.  I don't remember whether the light changed, the time was up, or why it wasn't done.  I was ready to get rid of it, but found the photo reference on my computer and painted away.  Several other started canvases also got completed.  Some weren't worth saving.  Another of my goals this year is to take the time to immediately finish a piece worth finishing.

What a success it turned out to be. It is neat when you can finish a painting and have it turn out so well. Looking forward to seeing the others.

Julie, thank you! As you know, it doesn't aways work. The spur of the moment and attraction of the spot may be gone!

Thank you Claire. With the cold here, the summer seems far away.

Thanks so much Sherry!
