This still life painting has been bothering me for ages...
It's uninteresting, lacks vibrancy, and even though I revised the background once before, it just never felt right. So, I set it aside for a long time...several years...(um, maybe six years...). Just last week I finally felt inspired to try some new revisions, and here's the result:
I think I love it! It's lively, vibrant, full of movement and life, and slightly abstract. I deepened the shadows and added more defined petals on some of the flowers. I like how it's not clear where the actual flowers end and the background begins. It feels more like one of my paintings now, full of texture and saturated colors.
I plan to add it to my Etsy shop soon, so keep an eye out!
