It started out like this... now it looks like this. I really like this in person but am not liking the thumbnail version of it. Seems like it should work well either way. Hmm.... will have to ponder that.
The other thing is I really liked the first version and let it sit for a week and then I got bored with it over the weekend and worked on it some more. I'm thinking of Nick Simmon's words..."first do no harm"... I like both versions so don't know that I helped the painting any but I definitely removed the simplicity of the first, so did I do harm or did I make it better?
