I'm about finished with fall paintings. I'm frequently asked how long a painting takes, and this is a good example of why I don't really know. This piece was started last fall, kind of lost my way on it over the winter, and figured out what was bothering me about it and finished it over the last few weeks. Layer over layer, I wander my way to a finish.
A couple more fall pieces need a little work yet, and I'm still wrestling with some winter, too.
