Italy-- more and more

Started two new paintings.... the last of the 10 by 10's. The fountain is currently under construction ... and the Madonna shrine was just started today.

I have to develop both of them a lot further. That's what I like about working on multiple smaller pieces... you have the opportunity to work for a while, put away, bring them out,,, revisit, rework, revise.

Do you ever do that?

So, I believe almost all of the imagery is represented. There is only 4 larger paintings to be painted.

Then done.

And I am ready for that!

Still at it Carol? Can't believe how many pieces you are creating for this Italian show. Love how brave you are with your colours - the shrine full of rich blues.

These pieces are gorgeous! The colors are spectacular. I can't wait to see this show.

I like to work on a piece until it's finished. Otherwise I feel like I have a weigh on my shoulders. I think it stems from growing up with a Mom that got about 50 - 80% completed, got bored and moved on. Now it drives me crazy to leave things in an unfinished state.

Keep on keeping on, I love seeing all of these works:)
