Whew... I am Finished

I just finished a commission piece, it is on a 3x4 foot canvas. That is a lot of paint. I have used a new technique that I really like, lots of bold strokes and a spray bottle of water. I love the effect. This piece is of flowers called Bitterrroots, they are the Montana state flower. The more common variety are pink but to go with the clients decor we went with the more rare white ones. Even though the flowers are white the painting is definitley not lack in color, I had a lot of fun with the background. I hung it on my wall last night as the true test to see if I was happy with it. It passed, I wanted to keep it and leave it there. I will be sad to see this baby go.
