A New Finished Painting from the Studio of The Homeless Finch

It's Paint Party Friday! Yeah!  I joined up with this group of artists just over a month ago.  I have been loving it.  The camaraderie is just awesome.  So today, I will be showing one of my latest finished paintings.  I haven't put a varnish on this one yet, but I wanted to show it.
 
"My Memory Doesn't Serve Me Well"
by Lesley Litrento
30" X 30"

This painting developed over a distance of time. It is a painting that is covering a previous work that I completed.  The previous work was a painting for my daughter's room with large geometric designs on purple.  She hated it, so the canvas sat unused for quite sometime.  There are still bits and pieces of that original painting in this one. Pieces that only I know are there.   Here are some detail images of the painting.





Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek into The Homeless Finch Studios.  For those of you who are new, don't leave too quickly!  Take a look around my blog and check out my most popular posts highlighted on the right column.  If you aren't a follower, come join me!  I would love to have you follow along. 

Have a great weekend full of fun and creativity!

I really like this one. The name grabbed my attention, but the design kept me reading. How interesting to me that you painted over a painting.

A wonderful painting! It really feels great to finish something, doesn't it!

Thanks for posting those closeups so we could see the detail... this is great and I love those glimmers of purple coming through so much... they pop... happy PPF xx

KAT said...

I just love it...I am in awe of these type of art works ..I have never attempted to do one ...afraid of utter failure. I wish canvas and paint was given out free...them I wouldnt worry about failure ...I like your tree and I like the leaves they simplicity of them and yet the detail of the texture is very cool.

I like this painting. The colors are great and I'm wondering about the title because it reminds me of me. My memory hasn't been serving me well as of late. Interesting. Happy PPF, job well done.
