Ever Re-visited an artwork ? A Light Path, Oils

I can say that i have too often, in fact i would avoid it at all costs, i like to move on and move forward, rather than trying to fix something that is not quite right, sometimes i have done this in the past to "save" it and you work and work and work and just never get there.

In saying that though, there is advantage in both design and art to let the artwork "sit" for a bit. Just to revisit it with fresh eyes and fresh perspective. You somehow see things that you previously didn't see and new inspiration can hit you.

"A Light Path" - By Belinda Lindhardt Oils on Canvas

The latter is what i did with this above piece, i thought i had finished it but i think i called it finished cause i was tired of looking at it not because i felt it was finished. Something about it bothered me, i didnt know what but somehow i had a feeling it wasnt done.

So this past week this painting was revisited, (and yes i have posted it before so you have seen this one before also) just about all of it was adjusted and its made for a much better job.

this painting is about a journey, a "light" path, i know in my previous version this wasnt highlighted enough. its also go a few other themes in there that i was thinking of when i painted it, but i dont want to interpret my paintings for everyone i like to see what people think of it themselves.

This one will be in the Summer Exhibition at Gosford Arts Center this weekend. Will post the details next post.

Belinda, I liked this before. It really tells the story now. Nice work and nice change.

I really, really, really like this, Belinda! It brought sunshine to my dreary day, as I'm sure it does that for you too!
