My roses have now died, my bowl is still floating and my surface (cloth) needs more dark values. I'm not sure whether I'll put the corner of the table in or paint the edge of the table straight across. I'm thinking about adding a little of the cloth decoration. I have realized that I have the roses way to focused and the edges are too severe, and I haven't honored the focal area. I squeezed the top rose in while I should have let it go out of the picture and now all of them are too crowded......I think the roses "grew" before they died (laugh). Many decisions I have to make while I'm painting on some other things, and then to make things worse....I place guilt trips on myself for not posting often enough.....who told me to post often....myself, of course.
I need to have a dialogue with someone else! Hope my husband is ready when he comes in this evening:)
