Mandatory time off.....




Just getting off of a four day migraine spree. It's not the quality time off I'd have asked for but I feel a renewed energy to make up for the lost time. I've just finished re-doing this painting. I'd finished the bottom version about a month ago and it's been bothering me since. I finally unframed it and painted out the character on the left. I much prefer the big empty space plus in this case it just felt like 'threes a crowd'.
The last time I went back and changed a painting like this I got an email soon after from a customer wanting to purchase it.....and immediately realized I hadn't updated the image on the website. Of course the customer didn't seem to appreciate my changes and wanted the original (which no longer existed). Oh well. At least this time I have not yet listed the painting on the website.

Chris, it looks as though it was her or him (her big hand reaching for him is ominous). Glad you painted her out of the picture!

Thanks Cindy. Glad to hear someone else agrees

I like to hear that someone agrees that I made the right decision. This one is in a gallery now- I'll know for sure when it sells I suppose. Chris
