Watercolor, 22” x 26”, $1,100
I started this piece when I was a kid learning to paint. I didn’t finish it at that time. Well, that’s not exactly true. I thought it was finished then, and though I liked it well enough, I had a feeling something was wrong with it. I then went back to school and learned graphic design. My design work kept me so busy that my painting time dwindled to nothing. It wasn’t till 30 years later that I got around to clearing out my flat file and found this painting. And immediately I saw what I didn’t see when I put it away. It simply wasn’t finished! So then I finished it. I had another name when I first painted it, but the signature is mine.
