To finish or not to finish.

When you take up a painting again that’s been sitting on the easel  for two years, you sometimes wonder if you should finish it or just start all over again. This one I started more than two years ago… and at last its done.

I almost started all over. The picture stayed the same, but then I used the strangest blues and greens. I think I bought new paint at that time and just wanted to use it. Now I am back at my usual sap green and french ultramarine and like it more. Well, the river still has a minty touch, which I will leave like that… : )

fishing… dreaming…

    Dis mooi – ek hou mos van die paintings van jou – onthou as jy eendag die een van Franci in die hammock wil verkoop….

  2. I like this. Very peaceful and reminds me when I was a young girl fishing.
