While I was getting my studio up to showing order (Open studio coming soon!!), I found several paintings that I had painted some time ago but then set them aside because they weren’t quite finished. They just needed a few finishing touches, but I wasn’t ready to make them.

Fall has begun (only in paint!) And end of a show.

Here’s the beginning of Fall, next to the edge of Summer. Those lines are in there to make sure the series all flows together up on the wall.
