Finally

I started this painting YEARS ago. It was my first attempt at oil painting, and it was a gift to Dan for Christmas/our anniversary/Valentine's Day... you get the picture. For the last two years I have just considered it done, although I had never signed it.
Then I was asked to put it on display for a church "talent show" night (tomorrow). Not a huge deal, but I still wanted it to be "finished."
I worked on it a bit two nights ago, and I finally felt ok about signing it. There, done.

I should note that this picture of the painting makes it look more washed out and flat than it really is. Plus in real life it is HUGE.
Here are two little close up shots of the detail.
I love impressionism.
