Artists have devised so many ways to look at art. I paint with a mirror behind me, so I can look at the art in reverse. There are minimizing mirrors and mirrors painted black underneath. We often hold the painting upside down. All these things are done to create a balanced painting (check values, etc.). Now we can post images to Facebook and blogs and other sites. The critiques and validation is so helpful to artists. When painting by oneself, it's often difficult to judge ones own work.
Some people are able to paint a painting and declare it complete. The mood and inspiration can be fleeting. But viewing the art over time, in different ways, I'm usually compelled to change things.
Here are some recent still lifes, some posted in previous stages. I think these are finished!
