Oil on canvas board
12 x 16
Ugh! Couldn't get a photo without a bunch of glare.
After posting yesterday's picture, I decided the background was too light. I had originally intended for a really dark background that everything would disappear into. Even though I really loved the painting, after waking up at 3:00 AM and stewing about it for 1/2 an hour I decided to get up and repaint the background.
I am not sure if I made a mistake or not. I think this is a better picture. But it lost the vitality of the first version. I think I like this one better but I am mourning the loss of the original. What do you think? Mistake or not? At least I have the photograph!
