I am so thrilled to have finished this piece.
When I included the leaves a while back, I had a feeling we weren't done yet although I knew I was a little closer. I packed these gals away after the leaves because I was so busy doing other stuff and I tend to work in phases. This past week I had been pulling out pieces to see where I’m standing for my auction that’s coming up later in the year. I have a fair amount of work lying around and a fair amount of work ahead of me. I'm getting quite excited.
It’s hard to explain but they are so much more emotive in person. I keep finding myself standing in front of them, so deeply moved. They are rich in color and so deeply connected to each other. I wasn't sure how I was going to fill this canvas or where this piece was going to take me but I couldn't have been happier where we ended together.
For now I will let them rest. I've put them up so I can study them for a while.
