About unfinished paintings...

I don't know about you, but I don't like having unfinished paintings. If I see them lying around in the studio they are a reminder of my non accomplishment;  even if you hide them in a cupboard, you can still hear them whisper "Why didn't you finish me?", "Do you give up that easily?" 

So this post is about 3 paintings I managed to finish in the studio recently. As I usually paint in plein air, 99% of my work is all done on the spot. But those 3 paintings were executed while I was heavily pregnant, and I just didn't have the energy to finish them at the time. Two of them were actually done during a plein air tutorial, which makes it even harder to complete the job properly. I gave them a few finishing touches so they can now fulfil their little lives without shame!
