Spring Floral, Oil on Linen, 12x16 (SOLD)

Yesterday I posted this painting. Immediately I realized I was not happy with it. Still, I shared it with the world warts and all. This morning I reworked almost the entire painting. This is the result. If you saw it yesterday, I'm hoping you will agree that it is improved. Anyway, I'm much happier with it today than I was yesterday. To me a painting is done when I can sense the place and there is a strong memory of being there, of breathing the air, listening to the sounds, feeling the sun. This painting takes me back two weeks to when I stood in this place.
