I have had Soggy hanging in our bedroom for some time, watching it to see how it could be improved. The invitation to show at the Corvallis Fall Festival Fine Arts Showcase this year motivated me to work to make the painting better. I felt the forms, especially of the water, could be better and more distance could be created on the ground plane. I thought the tree line could be more interesting too since the water speeds the eye there. Attending workshops, one with Eric Jacobsen and another with Sarkis, has given me new problem solving approaches in my painting. I framed the painting up this morning so that means I am finished with it, for a while at least!
