She's Never Satisfied
When I first paitned this in 2008 I was pleased with the contrasts of the snow and the dark woodline. The piece is 18 x 24" and all that white remains interesting because of all the color in the "white" snow. But as I looked at it every day the darks seemed too dark and I got the itch to make some changes. Last night I did.... the trees became more lighter, more mellow and thereby gave the painting a lot more depth. The interesting thing is that while I did fool with the weeds I didn't touch the foreground snow and look at it now! Granted the photo was taken with flash but the mood it totally different now. Its still on the easel; I may alter some of those pines. They are a little too symetrical for me. But for the most part its done. Again.
