Yes, its over! I write "I am finished" with the painting "Window," but truth be told, there are a few minor details to make better. In the reproduction you can't see these extremely minor problems, like the way the white of the left side of the window frame meets the yellow of the outdoors (there is a slight change in value of the yellow next to the white because some dark, still wet paint, was dragged into the yellow as I re-painted the hand). I want there to be no value gradation as the light on the side of window frame touches the light on the ground of the outside. I won't name each of the other minor problems, but all are of the same magnitude, each requiring 5 minutes of my time, which might add up to a total of 1 hour. Then there's the signature!
This painting, and one drawing, will be delivered to AVA Gallery in Lebanon, NH tomorrow.
