Turpentine diaries 2/3/19

I finished these three paintings today. Yeah, that’s a lot for me. But all of them have been ‘almost’ done for some time. Paintings can represent problems to solve and after I solve them, if that doesn’t finish the painting, I set the painting aside. Either the solution didn’t solve the painting, or other paintings present more interesting problems, puzzles if you prefer.

I’m most pleased with the middle painting; simple colors; nothing too fancy. It’s the second painting of the same subject. I was ill several years ago with a staph infection and during convalescence, I required nurses to visit my home. Mrs. Keeley, the painting’s subject, was one of them.
