Finished and framed..

Finished framed and hanging in the Fannie & Fox Gallery Penryn. 
Just for the record.. A
 last update before the painting was framed by my clever hubby.
(*The lightin the studio was very bright that day)
Here I've marked final adjustments with white chalk..

On my easel...

This is the beginnings of a new painting about love.. Under painting is cadmium red. I nearly always paint a canvas red or a red'ish brown to start start with.. It's at this stage when all I'm doing is looking at it standing back and re-drawing.

When stars were washed up on the beach..

The other evening there were several star fish washed up on Gyllyngvase beach
A couple of children were thinking it fun to play with them.. 
Needless to say we had words... 
I must have looked a sight. I can see the headlines... 
'Crazy lady returning stars into the sea'..

They were still alive, just.. So I did what I had to do..
