Painting the Color of Light
This weekend I decided to rework this plumeria flower painting that I had done several years ago and was never quite satisfied with. I'm not sure any artists are ever really satisfied with their art, I think thats why we keep on taking on the challenge to improve and sometimes go back in and play with an old painting to see where it takes us. Maybe I've gone too far with this one, but it looks better than before and better captures the light and color I witnessed the day I saw these plumeria, but not too thrilled with the changes I made to the background, so this one goes into the not successful folder. Learning is what its all about when painting so we have to accept the failures too.
