I'm always amazed at how great some paintings can look from across a room while others look better the closer you get. This one is stunning as you get back and the eye can mix the colors without being bothered by the detail...much like seeing it in real life. Each time I walk into the studio this painting catches my eye even if my overhead painting lamp isn't on....when it's left on the painting looks even better.
I had a painting in a 22" x 28" frame but it was painted a while back and I thought another attempt at that size was in the cards. They had a recent canvas sale so I picked one up at that size and painted this one up to replace the older painting....a good thing too because I'm much happier with this image.
