I signed the piece and then mounted it on my desktop Best easel. Then I always move the completed piece into my house from room to room to observe it in different light and time of day. This allows me to make slight adjustments that I may have missed before signing off.
In the end, I decided not to put the lavendar in the foreground corner. I was very pleased with the fencing and the plants would have been in the dark of the oak’s shadow leaving them to be nothing more than clutter.
This was a relatively quick piece with 45 hours. Final value: $2450
