"Unfinished Symphony - Roses in B minor"

6"x6", oil on canvas board

I started this painting a week ago over the old painting mostly of BG and RV. I thought that I had to work a lot more on this painting. But I reached at the point where I was not happy about losing the beneath colors from the old painting.
So I stopped because I didn't know what to do.
Now roses are gone. Also time went by. I am getting more comfortable with this "Unfinished" painting.
I tend to over work lately, I am going to call this painting finished as "Unfinished". The title of this painting would be "Unfinished Symphony" or "Roses in B minor"?
This painting remind me of Franz Schubert's "Unfinished Symphony" (Symphony No. 8 in B minor)

It is a small painting after all. There are plenty of roses waiting to be painted.
In the future....
I might like to adopt the painting process of painting by layers .

I just found your blog and love your paintings. I strive for a loose look and admire how your work reflects this. When time allows I am going to explore your blog further.

This is gorgeous! I love how much you leave unsaid and yet it looks very finished to me. Beautiful textures and great color relationships.

It looks finished to me, and it is beautiful! I love the softness about it.
