I’ve sometimes been asked if I ever work on a painting and decide I don’t like it. Usually if something is not working out, I’ll find a way to fix it. Well, I thought I’d share a piece that I almost gave up on until now. I started this piece- get this- in February of 2010. It’s been over 2 years and I’m just now touching this one again. At the time, I found it a bit overwhelming working on the skeletons at such a small size, since this is a 6″ by 6″ canvas. In addition, I just wasn’t happy with the background and kept changing my mind. So I put it away. There were a few times when I thought about just throwing it out and I even started to do a larger version, but that wasn’t right. The size of canvas I choose is based on the amount of visual information I need to get across. There is such a thing as too big. So after some time away, I decided to tackle it one last time. The photo that you see here is actually where I left off before deciding to work on it again. I’ll be posting the finished piece soon, so be on the lookout.
