"Spirea" reworked

Reworked painting
Original demo painting.
I spent a little time reworking "Spirea". I think the painting now looks much more finished. Sometimes you just have to give a painting a little time and then go back and attack....This was done in 08 so I gave it plenty of time......but I was never happy with it.....Or, sometimes you just have to start over.....But one thing you don't want to do is leave a canvas floating around the studio that no wants to buy and you're not excited about. Work it over, Start from scratch, Or, toss it in the Frisbee pile.

I really like the rework. Wonderful abstract qualities - and I agree a more finished look.

Great color, too!

Yes, you resolved it nicely, there is lots of interest in it, without losing the abstract motion of it. Your colors in this one and the two previous are so vibrant -- and I am sure are even more so in person

Thank you Patrice! I'm really trying to get Abstract interest in my paintings.

Hi Don! Thanks! I'm not satisfied with my color yet and am taking a class right now, hoping it will help.

I enjoyed both but I loved the texture and clarity of the first. It freshened the impression for me.
