Revisiting the Past

31" x 21"
Oils on Canvas,
by Jennie

I know I promised you all I wouldn’t fiddle with finished works but to be honest this one just didn’t feel finished. I hadn’t signed it and the more I looked at it it just didn’t feel right. It was eluding me until I looked at another piece that gave me the same trouble- it has now become one of my most popular pieces – Spirit.

There was a time during that painting where it just wasn’t working – it was lacking depth and interest and looked dull, not dynamic at all. I applied the same reasoning to this painting and it seems to have come alive, it looks (to me anyway) much more dynamic, a bit more fluid and much more powerful.

It’s funny, but little things do make a difference. what do you think? was it better before? or now?
