The LAST of The Italian Suite!

"YES!" I'm finally done.

Today was the final day-- of finishing up the last two painting of a 14 month odyssey.

It feels GREAT to put this chapter to bed!

I have loved working on THE ITALIAN SUITE-- and can't wait to show it next month.

BUT... I'm ready to move forward -- and tackle other projects with resolve.

The last painting.... [the top one] is called IN BETWEEN BLUES... was excellent to work on.

The bottom painting had begun about a month ago... but had to be tweaked to finish it off.

I worked hard on the transitions of the trees to ground... as well as make the background more atmospheric.

I have 4 panels... 30" h x 30" w ... that will exhibit as a long horizon.

You can see three of them here.

Tomorrow... I will install them on my larger wall in the studio-- and make a photo that shows the four.
It was difficult to make the panels sympathetic...and also different.



now... to work on the book...announcement and publicity for the opening!
