Sometimes, well, often, if a piece of work hangs in an artist's home long enough they will make changes...Thus is the case with this one. It bothered me for awhile, but it wasn't until I sat in the hot sun of SAM just staring at it did it come clear to me what needed to be done. Simple changes, but important ones...I took out the dark in the trees and replaced it with SKY. HOW SIMPLE...why didn't I see it earlier? Well, partly because I work so fast...and I had blinders on to what I know simply...and so...the change. Don't be afraid to do that with existing paintings! If you've been an artist for very long at all, you already know on some level...you just have to tap in to that inner voice that knows the rules, the composition, the common sense answers...you just have to listen!
