Dark Kiss, 20 x 20, oil on linen
I usually work on a painting until it has been completed. On occasion,
I'll set a painting aside for some reason and complete it later. I began
this Chocolate Kiss painting in June 2012, working on it and putting it
aside several times. Finally (!), this oil painting came to a happy
conclusion a few days ago in January 2013.
I think it was the purple/magenta foil that caused my dilemma. This is
not a color that is usually on my palette and I struggled getting the
colors just right.
This painting is on its way to Chasen Galleries in Richmond, VA
