I went back in with some more shadow colors and values and worked on flattening the spray a bit more as it's closest to the deck. It still has the masking fluid on but I think I'll remove it before I do more. It's slowly coming along. I've had other things keep me away from it for a while.
I need to get back to the Twisted painting, too, and see where I can take it.
Deb and Sharon were both telling me about upcoming shows I should enter. After seeing the work at the AWS show, I sometimes doubt I'll ever get where I want to go - but I'm still working at it! That's all I can do - and I hope I'm getting better and more accomplished as I keep working. And someday, who knows, a painting of mine may be in a major show and you'll see it and say, "What was the judge thinking by letting that one in?" ha ha
