I'm 99% finished on this new painting, with the exception of the grey shape at the lower left, which just needs a bit of fine tuning - perhaps I'll put a sheer glaze of white over it to push it back just a little. Aside from that one shape, the rest of the work feels complete. The painting is 18" x 24"; titled "Everything is Coming Together"

I always say a work is finished with a twinge of reluctance. The next day or two days or even a week later I could decide this new painting needs just a bit more editing or a complete overhaul. But today I feel good about it. It reminds me of how the birds at our feeders will suddenly fly up and away, then return to eat more. So I'm calling it " Taking Flight" for now.
