If you've followed any of my posts you have discovered that I will often go back into a painting later and change it. Some times the change is for the better and some times it is not. I think the important thing is to be willing to risk change even if something doesn't work out.
This painting below was done intuitively, meaning I did not have any reference photo or scene to work from - just my memory. Memories are influenced by past and present situations and state of mind. I have a feeling that I added the fall colors as my way of turning back the clock. Rather than being in the dead of winter as I am now, I brought the fall colors into my studio and into my life.
Here's the before and the after. What do you think?
