I haven't been very productive with my painting lately. But I did get one finished. Or at least I think it's finished. While I like this one very much, it isn't my favorite. I'm not sure I like the dead center subject treatment. I've always been told and always agreed that placing the subject matter off center creates a more interesting composition. But recently a well-respected teacher said that when painting in a square format (the painting is 15"x15") it is perfectly fine to have the subject dead center. So I tried it. And I like the painting. But I think I would like it more in the format I'm used to. But you don't know until you try and I'm glad I tried it. Because now I know.
