Perseverance! Large Acrylic Landscape painting

"Cloud Movement"
18x36 on canvas

Artist Derek Collins
This is my latest painting. I have been painting, frantically today to finish it, so that I could get it on this blog. This is my first entry. It is a painting that I struggled with. It started out looking pretty shabby. It seemed that I just kept correcting things. Then all of a sudden it just started coming together and it turned out really well. Sometime the ones that I struggle the most with turn out to be the best. Sometimes not! There is a point at which I decide to keep going or to throw it away and start over. I'm glad I kept going.

I really like the contrast of the threat of the clouds and serene foreground. Wonderful painting and first post!
