This painting of Magnolia blooms have been on the wall for many years. I just did not like it enough to proclaim it finished.
There is a gut feeling that some day I may have my Eureka! moment and know how to finish it off. Well, that day came a few days ago.
Now onto the next project!
Early days yet, but I am hoping that the bird will look more lively when I am done with this. It has white slashlike designs on the body which I used masking fluid to simulate and I will only know how it will turn out when I am done painting its body. The rubbery fluid rubs away and the white unpainted surface is exposed.
