"Center of Attention"
Oil on Canvas
This is my #4 of the 30 in 30 challenge that Leslie Saeta is sponsoring. http://lesliesaeta.blogspot.com/2012/12/thirty-paintings-in-thirty-days.html
I painted this from fresh flowers in a workshop taken with Nancy Madina. Here is a link to her blog:
I thought I was finished and signed my name. But, you know when you set it aside to dry, step away from it for a few days, things can change. It must have. I knew there was something bugging me about it. It just seems too bland or something. I was playing with this teal color in another painting, looked over at this one, and wha lah! I knew it needed a punch of teal. It is much improved now. I must have gotten my camera just a little crooked because I've inspected the painting and the vase is not really crooked. (Whew). I know I'm going to add a touch here and there before I call it good. When I do, I'll take a better photo in good light and post the final painting along with a link to buy. Thanks for looking! I would also appreciate a like on my Facebook fan page: Jay Neal Art!
