From start to finish

Sometimes as an artist, when I finish a painting, I can stand back from it and have absolutely no idea how I got there. There are so many layers, so many hours and so much intensity that goes into creating an artwork – often I get completely lost in the process and have no recollection of how I got from start to finish. Thank goodness for iPhones and the ability to document with progress shots!

Today I am sharing some progress shots from a painting for my mother in law's 70th birthday. The painting features my 2 daughters (her granddaughters) as the sleeping angels amongst the floral setting.
