Was it better before?

Today this painting went in yet another direction.  I decided to change the landscape to an actual place way up in the foothills that I ran to with some friends a while back.  Now it is looking down into the valley below.

It’s still a work in progress.  The paint on this one is really thick so it takes a long time to dry.  The question I’ve been asking now is, “was it better before?”  I have said that so many times in the past, but in general now I just keep moving forward from wherever I’m at.

Here are a bunch of before pictures of this one.  I like it better now.

I just found this little YouTube video of one of the foothill trails I run on.  I didn’t take the video.  But you can see how peaceful it is up there.

  1. WOW! It is so naturalistic — everything has the texture of life in it now — of the randomness of nature. It feels so much more atmospheric and true. What an amazing and brave transformation!
