Seeing Spots

"Every picture shows a spot with which the artist has fallen in love"....(Alfred Sisley)
These past several days I've been working on a painting that has not been coming together for me. I've loved the color and composition, but just could not make it happen.
I have a book titled "A Painting a Day" which is basically a calendar with a painting and a quote that accompanies the painting. Today's quote for the day was the Sisley quote above. It made me realize that the painting I was so frustrated with did not have a "spot". I looked back through some of my past and recent paintings and thought I would share the spots where I fell in love. Maybe if anyone is reading this out there.... you might share your spots.

Beautiful spots! I have favorite sections in my paintings too.

I fell in love with every one of them, Karen. These are masterful and stand on their own.
