16. Fire Engine Red

Fire Engine Red
9 x 12 Inches
Oil on Gesso Board

 The other day I read this quote on the internet, "The hardest thing about writing 
a novel is finishing it." That's exactly how I felt about this painting! I almost 
gave up on this painting half way through, and then again about two thirds of 
the way through. When I feel the urge to give up on a painting I tell myself 
"Just finish it and then you can decide if it's a keeper or not." I'm glad I made myself 
finish this one! I haven't worn these red patent leather loafers in a while. I think 
I'll break these out again in the fall and winter. It's fun to wear bright colors on gray days.
