I will say that even though the scene itself emanates simplicity, I did not find the painting very simple to paint. For one thing it is always a challenge for me to paint glass. You don't really paint glass, but what is behind it. I find the challenge is to know when you have said enough without overdoing it. Leave something for the mind to complete in the painting. I also struggled with the background and could not decide what to do with it. I tried painting it the way it appeared in the photo reference but it did not work at all the way I wanted it to. Finally I decided to just wipe off and follow my inner creative sprit and what "felt right" without over thinking.
I was reminded of a time I threw out dying flowers from the deck into the yard only to find that the next Spring they had taken root on the hillside by my home and were creeping down the hillside and looked wonderful! When I showed them to my grandson, Weston, he said, "Mimi, sometimes things just happen". Well, in this painting, "things just happened" and I like them.
