Spent the morning tweaking and signing

Millie and the Sunflowers 11"x14" oil.
I extended some sunflower petals and reworked Millie's face and gave her white paws.

Beach Babies 16"x20" oil
I repainted the upper back of the girl in the turquoise swimsuit.

Christina and her Cello 10"x8" oil.
I adjusted a few things on Christina's face.

Painting at Limepark 10"x8" oil.
Several finishing touches... red flowers, red pot, adjusted the painter's shirt, put a few dashes of light on the pavement...

Girls Beach Day 10"x8"
I changed a lot in this one. Made the skirts blow to the right, raised the woman's arm, changed her neckline, added a beach towel... It feels slightly more casual and connected now, I think.

All this makes me want to go look through some of my false starts and see if there's something I could do to save them now.

Really like the beach babies piece. I can feel the mothers in the background with ever watchful eyes on the children.

Wow, Susan, Millie is more beautiful than before...I like what you did with her paws and face. What a difference. I didn't think the first one could be improved on...but, WOW...she's gorgeous!

You were busy, and certainly accomplished a lot. More incredible decisions which produced absolutely stunning paintings!

I love watching you paint and seeing the finished products! You are an amazing artist!
