Ten years in the making: “Treeline”

How long it takes to complete a painting is an often-asked question. Time to complete varies from piece to piece. In some, the stars align and the piece seems to be “done” fairly quickly. Others are a bit more of a struggle. Some take forever. This piece, for instance, took 10 years to complete. That’s a long time for a small piece. It was done fairly quickly–too quickly–10 years ago. It’s been around the studio most of that time, with brief stints at this gallery or that. Recently realized the piece was never finished. It was pale, washed out, and void of color, so I put it back on the easel, and finished what I started, a decade ago. “Treeline” 24 x 12 o/c
