RED TREES revisited




It seems like I've revisited this canvas every fall for the last few years. I wonder if it's done yet? I rather like the first version now that I see it again. I've learned a lot with every layer.

Hi Virginia, I think I prefer the first verson too, but you've really intensified the energy of this last "visit" with those bold marks in the front. I'm crazy about the colors.
I love your idea of a Perennial Painting!

Sometimes it seems like certain paintings benefit from the earlier layers. They become better paintings because of the layers underneath.
