A Painting Within a Painting
Where the Dirt Road Ends, 5 x 7
Every once in awhile when I have a painting sitting around that I'm not thrilled with, I look closely at it to see if there are any areas that can be cropped out to make a better, smaller painting. Often these areas were originally less important parts of the painting that I didn't fuss with and overwork, and therefore the color application is much more fresh and lively. See if you can find the original painting in an earlier blog post in which the above painting previously resided.
