To rework, or not to rework?
I had completed a piece a few months ago…wasn’t sure I liked a significant part of it…a road, specifically, that dominated the right hand side of the composition. The subject was confusing…was it the structure? or the road? It went to a gallery, came back, and sat in the studio for a couple weeks until I just got tired of looking at it and debating about the road. So, out went the road…and the entire composition changed. Reworking a piece is sometimes necessary to uncover what should have been painted in the first place. “Highbank Farm” 48 x 36
