for better or for worse...

Varnished. If all else fails they make a pretty table top.

Often when I have finished a painting I catch sight of it with shadows on it or sunlight dancing across it. It comes to life in a way that I have not managed to paint it.

I like to push things to the limit (in painting, that is!) but often find that nature has greater lessons for me to learn.

Now I must paint the single poppy again, in water colour, and this time make it really sing.

PS the temperature is in the high 30s again today, hence abandoning creativity and choosing to varnish and put the paintings on the "finished and now untouchable" list.
