Kate Kern Mundie, Hats, 20 x 40 inches, oil on panel
Hats sat in the studio the last few months. It was finished but something was bothering me. I would look at the painting, then turn it to the wall, then come back to it later for a look. I was happy with the way the hats had come out. I was not sure about the way the background was resolved. I had played with the painting and background as I had worked on it, trying different things. But in the end simplicity is best. I think it is finished now.
