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!
