Old & New Beginnings

A nice way to spend my Saturday!

Folks often request that I create a painting for them that is similar to one of my older pieces. In this case I actually painted the original one almost 10Β  year ago so, it was fun to revisit.

This is the original painting done so long ago.
‘Beginnings’ – acrylic on canvas – 3′ x 4′

The new canvas that I finished up today is actually smaller and much more narrow than the original painting – only 1.5′ x 3′ instead of 3′ x 4′.

My dining room studio. πŸ˜‰

There was a lot of very different types of layered items in this piece so it felt a bit slow going. The sky was very different and separate from the clouds. Even the ground seemed very separate and different from the trees. The whole thing feels like a bit of a mish mash ( πŸ˜‰ ) of elements.
