Art: Dahlias by Artist Deborah Leger
Oh dear. Another unfinished piece! (Of the many lurking in my studio.....) This one is being included in my EBSQ portfolio as an entry into the Unfinished Show.

Started in May of 2005, it's done in watercolour on arches 140 lb cp paper taped to a masonite board. (It's still taped to the board, by the way!)

I started this painting because I'd wanted to paint a floral macro. It was, then, the biggest painting I'd attempted. It still holds that record, actually. I lost interest in it, I guess, because of the tedium of painting in nothing but orange. (Imagine rolling eyes here please.) Right now, if I went back to it, I don't think I could duplicate the colours to fit in nicely. It might very well end up as a much smaller painting, cropped down to include only some painted areas.

And one day, I may just start another one of these dahlia macro paintings. In the meantime, it faces in to the wall in the unfinished pile.
