Major work!

I've been quietly working away on my ambitious project. I started it during the last holidays, and have been puttering away on Saturday amd Sunday mornings ever since. I really wanted to fill a wall over my bed, and it just had to be a triptych - and it just had to be sunset over the river. This Saturday, fired up by my Thursday art classes, I just painted and tweaked until it was ready for hanging. I'll stare at it for a while, then take it down and tweak some more, but guess what - I like it!!

Wow! I love it mum! Amazing colours. That looks like the best piece of work I've seen from you - can you post some more close up shots to Flickr?

Wow, this is beautiful Cate! What an ambitous project but one that was worth it...and I know that feeling of needing to give something just 'one more tweak"!
