I think that Orange Vase with Figs is finished, at least for the moment. Neil Helyard gave me a lot of help bringing it nearer to finished.

I wish there was time to frame it before I go away, but there isn't, and perhaps when I get back I will see it needs more work. This painting has been a real struggle, at times making me wish I hadn't started working with pastels, but without the struggles, you can never improve I guess.
Today I have a lot of housework type stuff to do, so don't know if I will have time to paint.
