oil on panel

Sometimes you think a painting is finished (or you want it to be finished) but there is a nagging voice telling you otherwise. Such was the case when I first posted this little painting , declaring it finished. But as soon as it posted, I felt it wasn’t . My doubt was confirmed, just a few hours after posting it , by a phone call from my friend the artist Paul Torres. Paul, with his usual courtliness let me know how much he LOVED the new painting , then just as quickly told me how the hell to improve it. I love Paul for that, the ability to ever so cleverly help me attain what I seek without crushing my spirit. Check out Paul’s fantastical world at this link:http://www.paul-torres.com .
This is how the painting looked before Paul’s phone call.
I’m thankful for my friends, lets just say that, particularly Paul.
