As I often do when a work stays home with me for awhile, I've reworked it a little. It is the hazard or blessing that belongs to the creator of the work I suppose! I like this MUCH better! I was always bothered a little by the colors I chose for the sky, and I felt the body of the work needed a little brightening. This all falls in line with my working with brighter colors and using a bit more pattern
previous version...this photo makes the sky color look two toned, in reality it was all more the blue to the left and the foreground was a little dark...just didn't appeal to me. I also added a few highlights to the trees.
It's ok if you were attached to the earlier version (though that no longer exists), but for my growth as an artist I need that brighter color with more texture!
