Using Leftover Palette Colors

Oil on canvas, 6" sq.,  c. Catherine Vines

I don't really like to finish a painting, even though that's what I work for.  The "what next" dilemma haunts me, and it sometimes takes me days, or even longer to decide where to go.  In this case, my last painting was such an undertaking that I wasn't ready for another tree! Luckily I read an interview of Catherine Kehoe in which she said she used the paints leftover at the end of the day to make a self-portrait.  While this is an amazing neighbor rather than a self-portrait, the idea stands.
