Last Crossing; Uncertain Sky

Last Crossing; Uncertain Sky, by Mary Stebbins Taitt, smudge painting,
For Donna Scott.

I apologize for posting the same picture yet again, but every time I
think I'm done, I decide to work on it some more.

No need for apology as it's always educational to see a piece develop. As I mentioned, the previous version is looser, more impressionistic and still my favorite. The cropping is much more dramatic also and, for me, much more interesting.

I always think no painting is ever finished and no writing is ever completed. Although I have a tendency to quit, anyway. :) I love the way you moved through this one, each one portraying a totally different emotion.

Thank you so much Mick, toy, Happy, and tumblewords!

toy, I tried to leave comments on your photoblog, but I did something wrong and I couldn't understand how to fix it.

Thanks for such thoughtful comments.

I love seeing the progression. The impressionistic look of the third one is great, but this last one really catches my eye. I think it's because of the red in the sky. It has a more ominous look against the deeper blues of the water. The sailboat looks as if it's glowing.

Mary,
We are never finished until the end.
This is a nice website.
