Breathtaking, bold impasto

"Breathtaking", 12x16, oil on Raymar panel

I'd painted this a few weeks back, but wasn't totally happy with it. So I added the baby's breath to break up the intensity of the blue and redcolors and it finally came to life!

This is an example of what is hard about daily painting. In order ot get a piece just right, it often takes days and even weeks to perfect a work. To paint a piece in one day and post it as well, is difficult for me , and I know other artists who share my feelings.
