* Sunday Afternoon"

I've been really struggling with the background.  Didn't want to go any further with the figures until I had the background in place.  Took the table out three times.  Re sized it, reshaped it, re thought it, and put it back in.  Still didn't like it.  Moved the drapes from the middle of the painting over to the right.  Couldn't stand that it cut the painting in half.  Created some landscape out the window to give the room more depth.  That seemed to work.

Today at class I had a bit of a breakthrough.  Dumped the table for good.  Took out the candles on the left hand side.  Created candles ... larger more substantial in the middle.  I think I'm over the 'stuck' part.  I will be able to carry on working this week.  YEAH!

You can see I've begun to add colour.  I love this part!

“The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.” Rumi
