Seeing the forest for the trees...

I've been working on a 30" x 40" painting of the forest from studies I made while in the NC mountains last month... working to keep it abstracted.  At one point I was dissatisfied with it... turned it upside down to study the composition.  Then worked on it upside down for awhile.  When I turned it back "rightside up" it looked much better!   Go figure (have to trick that left brain sometimes I suppose).

By the way, my fun abstracted painting of Theo, "Model No Show" won a prize at the TRAA show in New Bern this week.  Yay!
