New from Old

Ok this is done now.
  I like to leave a painting that I think is complete, setting out where I can view it daily for a while.  Often paintings I thought were done when I first put the brushes away, tell me a different story after viewing for a while.  Even paintings that do look finished will give me ideas for a new painting.  This is an example of one that I thought was done but as it set out it realized it need more.
Another reason I like to view them is to see if they keep my interest, it is a huge part of a good painting. 

This is a follow up to that last blog the painting that started a small series, and in the end the original even changed.
