Every so often, I’ll end up with a stray finished painting. Maybe it went to a gallery (and didn’t find a new home) or maybe it didn’t, but it just hangs out in a corner or on my drying rack until I feel inspired to do something with it. That was Exactly what happened to Scarlet Impressions.

This was one of my earliest pieces with people, but not the details of the city. Last week it caught my eye and I spent a few days looking at it off and on. Something was just … missing. I wasn’t sure where it would lead but I went back to work on it and now have a finished piece that I’m happy with!
