Parts of this painting went like a dream...brilliant! Other parts proved to be far more challenging and took much longer...not so brilliant. After I'd finished it this afternoon, I put the painting out of sight and looked at it again after a couple of hours. I often do this when I've worked on something solidly for a while. The separation from it gives me a chance to see with a fresh eye and I often find that the first impression when I look at it again tells all. However, I was satisfied that I'd done all I could, so here it is!
