Thank You, Ronald - I have to agree, and put it down to an example of zeroing in on an insignificant issue and reworking a painting with a less pleasing result. That's the lesson I learned after viewing the before and after photos and one inspiration for this post. I know I will remember it the next time I am tempted to fix something.

I much prefer the top image. It has freshness and mood that tells of a confidence in craftsmanship. I find that when "in the zone," the artist first impressions and marks are the correct ones and latter attempts to massage and correct are most often detrimental to the finish. Confidence in self, vision, ability and purpose while creating leads to successful mark making work that sings from the artists soul and enchants the viewing audience.
