Fade Away

How do we know when an painting is finished? This a common question painters hear and I am never sure how to answer. On any one day a work could be finished and then called into question and reworked. The painting above is a prime example of this showing the original flower blooms that were then cut out of the canvas they were painted on. I always liked the edges of the blooms and the way no two seemed the same. They were glued on a board and then repainted and repainted again. So here we are and I'm not sure if it is done or not.
