Reworked 8”x10” oil on linen

I LOVE before and after photos. Pretty much across the board: haircuts, house remodels, people after they have lost weight – all of it. Taking something good and making it better has great appeal to me. Like many artists, I have a stack of paintings that don’t delight me. Picking them up to work through them again is a fun process. I ask myself “what can I do to improve this?” That part is like solving a puzzle. My answers often include: more paint, more values, better composition, and/or adding a focal point.

I sketched some rough lines of where I planned to rework my clouds.
