Boardwalk



12 x 24 Oil

I'm not sure yet if I am finished with this painting. I will let it sit for a while. Sometimes it is hard to know when to stop. I have ruined many paintings by trying to "fix" them. Richard Schmid says in his book "It takes two to do a painting; one to paint it, and the other to rap the painter smartly with a hammer before he or she can ruin it."

I'd welcome some opinions.....

I like it as it is, although it tends to make me feel lonely.
