Here is a new piece that has taken me a little longer than I anticipated. I struggled with the lace quite a bit, but liked the concept too much to give up on it. After about 17 trial and errors of painting lace, I've settled with this...I think I'm happy with it, but need to give my eyes a rest before I can really tell how i feel. I've cropped out a few inches of the sky here, but the actual painting is more vertical.
