Paintings have their own life -- we start out painting in one direction and then the painting takes us in another!
And, sometimes, the paintings come back to us -- that is a good time to “re-look” at your work and decide how you can make it better. At the end of a season, I usually request that the galleries send me back the paintings that did not sell so that they have a “fresh” look for the season. You certainly don’t want your collectors to return and see the same paintings still on the wall.
And, now you are looking at your painting with “new” eyes -- certainly you have matured and so has your work!
I put the paintings on the floor in my studio and study them -- for days, sometimes even longer. And, then, when I am ready, I put “new” touches on it -- to make it sparkle and to give it new life!
This is one of those paintings.
