|Ta-da! It may look simple, but trust me.... It wasn't!|
Overall, my assessment of the process of painting this artwork is that it's been a very personal and maddeningly pleasant experience. Maddening, because, well, I've just told you about my "issues" and I'm sure I've lamented about all the problems I've encountered in earlier posts.
It's pleasant and personal because it features things I love: my blue vase is featured in the painting, as are my lemons (which are now all but a memory as they've been squeezed liberally over pancakes before they went mouldy. Mmmmm Pancakes with sugar and lemon - try it if you haven't, it's a delicious alternative to maple syrup. Yes, I know I digress from the topic on hand, but you must admit it is very wonderful that you can come visit me and get handy cooking suggestions as well as share my art. Right, back to business... ;-)); my mountains in the background (I like to pretend I own the mountains, even if I know deep down they belong "to the people and mother earth"); and my tree (nothing special to add there).

So, what do you think? Do you like it? Success? Thumbs up? Go back and start again? Let me know. I'm always curious to hear what others think (and I sometimes get lonely being the only one writing here).
Personally, I think I'd like to try another scene similar to this one to see if I can improve second time around. Once I finally recover from the "maddening" part of the process, that is.
Anyway, thanks ever so much for stopping by! I'll see you around soon,
