handstand; completed

I know several people have heard it from me already, but I am so proud of this painting. I struggled with the background for a long time before simplifying the tree completely. I really enjoy the dry brush effect I get in some areas, and I think this is one of my more successful pieces in terms of the usage of color. I like to use every color in my paintings, and here they all seem to have balanced each other out and pulled the figure forward. Finally! Thanks to Chris for his mid-process critique.
