The Good Life on Summerland Key-6x8-SOLD


Spent today touching up and fixing my plein air paintings from early this week. this painting has had three lives.

when i was painting it, it looked like it does now and then the shadows on the boat moved and i thought i liked them better. so i painted out the original shadows and moved them over. got it home and hated it! so today i moved the shadows back where they were and got rid of chrome railings that werent working. pulled this one out of the fire, fixing it back to its former glory. funny how a small shape can ruin a whole painting! i'm slowing down and trying to fix things that dont read well and hopefully making my paintings better every day.
