WIP: Troublesome Pebble Update

I am working on Troublesome Pebble and another painting at the same time. This can be good and bad. Good because you can move from on to another, therefore keeping you busy while one is drying. Bad because at some point you focus on one more than the other. However, when they both get done it is worth it.

I began laying some color in the flower beds. I did not like how much she looked like she had been crushing grapes with her feet. But, I had promised myself to get the little girl and her dress half way done before I began the flowers. Leaving the darkness behind her last.
I can not tell you how hard this has been for me to not jump ahead of myself.  So far, I am happy that I am taking it slow. As you can see, her shadowed feet do not stand out so much.  When I get more of the flowers and shadows on the ground then the little girls shadowed feet will look better.     

The Miamisburg Gallery Show has closed. Once those paintings are picked up (thanks Mom & Dad), I will then enter the Middletown Arts Centers Show this week. Since I do not have to save paintings for the Java, Jazz n' Art, I will be able to enter the two from the Miamisburg Show (Waiting On thee Rain, Pop's Garden) plus Best Friend's Napping.   With any luck at least one will be judged in by Mr. Homer O. Hacker.

I will keep you posted.

This is going to be a darling painting when it's completed. I've never been able to work on two painting at the same time ... I've thought about it, but I can't seem to stop my focus on the first to start another. Looking forward to seeing your completed Pebble painting.

Good luck with Middletown! Didn't enter due to health issues and too busy with VP right now.

Thanks Nancy, I am enjoying this one.

Thanks Deb, I went up to MAC tonight (Tues.) and entered the two paintings that were at Miamisburg plus Best Friends Napping. Hoping one of the 3 gets in.
