In this case, having brought the painting home and lived with it a while, it became clear to me that this one (like so many of mine) was about the pattern more than the flowers. So I went with that. I've modified and pumped up and added pattern to the point where I hope it's obvious that the imbalance is intentional.
I am extremely pleased to have, from this year's workshop, a COMPLETED PAINTING that's not a throwaway. How rare is that? And there are still those other starts, two of which show good possibility, plus a problem-child painting which will keep me challenged for quite a while as I try to solve the problems I created for myself as I started it.
