Jan. 6 - #2hrchallenge

Another day another challenge completed. I get asked a lot - "How do you know when a piece is finished?" This question is hard - How indeed? For me, the answer is usually time. I like to let a painting sit for a few days in a spot I frequent. I get to see it spontaneously as I walk by and can take in my "at a glance" opinions and thoughts. Seeing it in photograph form also helps. For some reason when I look at my painting on a computer screen, its easier for me to see problem areas or spots that need a little more time.

Today I worked at little bit everywhere. Seeing it in photograph form, I am not quite happy with the dock or the back trees. I'll probably start something new tomorrow while I let this one sit and simmer.  #dailypainter #sacto2hrchallenge #2hourchallenge
