The image above is a small cropped section of one of my new paintings 'Feeling through rose-colored glasses' I can hardly contain myself about launching my new series 'BETWEEN FEELINGS' however, I have run into snag. Just when I thought my paintings were complete, I am wrestling with the questions of "how to finish the sides"? 'To paint or not to paint' is the question. Everyone seems to have a different approach to this question. I know all the options, however I am still not sure how I will tackle this issue. I have some questions into a gallery owner and I am waiting to hear back from him. What he has to say will go yards to helping what decision I will make.
I am a little disappointed that I won't be launching my series this week, but hey, that is how it goes. I am really excited about the entire series and hope that you will be too? Photographs came out pretty good and I will now begin formatting them. I am excited about the process of seeing them in print.
Hang in there... and I will be showing 'BETWEEN FEELINGS' paintings some time soon.
If you have any ideas to add to the mix, please feel free to leave a comment.

My painting 'GOING PLACES' took Honortable Mention in Fleisher's 116 Annual Student Exhibition in Philadelphia. Pa. This painting is 24x30 and is oil on canvas.
I really enjoyed creating this painting from beginning to the end. There were challenges along the way, because the display set up changes slightly every week. It was tricky to know which version of the still life that I was going to commit to. The third week of the painting set up, I was pretty much on my own interpreting the arrangement to complete it. I tried not to focus so heavily on looking at the still life arrangement, and used my own judgement, memory and imagination. I am really happy with how it has evolved and satisfied that I put all my skill and emotion into it.
Leave a comment and let me know what you feel about this painting? I would love to hear feedback and insight.
Thanks for reading this post.
