This one started out as an attempt to reproduce at a larger scale a small acrylic from last summer…and it wasn’t working. I began to rework it in oil at the beginning of this year, and maybe it’s done now…not sure. I need to live with it for a bit and see what else, if anything, needs to happen.

Here is the painting as it was yesterday:

Here is the small painting it was modeled on (quite a change, huh?):
