This painting has been something I have wanted to do for fo many years. It began a year ago. I posted the painting in process last February. Then set it aside. Every now and then I would take it out and contemplate what to do next in order to create the feeling I wanted to convay.
About a month ago I began painting on the background, clothing, faces and flowers. It has now has the feel I was looking for. I call it finished. Click here to see the early stages.
