This painting has been on and off my easel for the last two weeks. Every time I think I'm done with it, I change my mind. I actually signed it yesterday. I think I just wanted to stop the questioning.
The odd thing about this painting is that it looks good from a distance. But if I stand close to it and really observe all the details, the doubts come flooding in. One evening I was talking about this painting with my husband. I usually talk to him about things like this when I simply can't gain perspective. It's amazing what he comes up with from his non-artistic background. He said, "It should be hung in a place where there's low light".
I think he's right. Shouldn't the lighting be taken into consideration when hanging certain paintings?
