This is another remake; the painting originally had colors that were too harsh. After softening the oranges and adding purple to the background colors I believe the painting is more effective in focusing on the incredible light coming through the trees. After a year of daily painting, the ability to critique my own paintings has improved. Even though I have a long way to go, it is encouraging to feel more confident in the growth that has been achieved.

From the Hollins University foot bridge looking back to Rt 11, this Spring scene was begun on location two years ago! Many times I rework paintings that may not have hit the mark the first time. This is a definite improvement over the first try.
