One of my challenges is knowing when to stop working on a painting. Both of these oil paintings have been in a stage of completion for some time. The view of the river was a painting I started on a Plein Air Trip to Taos. Sitting by the river while painting will always be one of favorite painting trips. The other painting was inspired by those beautiful trees. The rest of the scene is from my “painting imagination”.
After studying them I “think I am finished”. No, I meant to say “I am finished!”
