Time Will Tell

I think I finished this painting this week, but I usually sit on them much longer than this to make that determination.  Usually I observe a painting for a good month and see what needs tweaking.  I like to leave them in different parts of the house and get a surprise look at them when my eyes are fresh.  So this may require some changes later, but right now I'm happy with it.  I really like the range of greens and the cheerfulness of it.  Tentatively done, tentatively called "The Grass Beneath My Feet."

Acrylic on Canvas, 18"x24"

And now I am checking out for the month of July.  I'm heading to the Baltics for a highly anticipated trip, starting in Stockholm.  I'll be back in August and see if my painting still holds up.

Robin, this is beautiful with all the color/value contrasts, different forms and masses of color plus partially hidden lines.

Love the colors and shapes in this. I can't imagine changing a thing but if you do it will still look terrific.
Happy travels!

Thanks for the kind words Paula and Suzanne! It feels good to end, for now, on a happy note.
