It's been a few days of fixing and readjusting. One painting came back from a gallery with minor damage to a corner, so I restored this to it's former glory.
I also took the opportunity to adjust the another painting that had been hanging for a number of months in the gallery.
As an artist I try not to revisit works, especially if they're varnished and out the door; but this one (to me) just felt a little too colorful. I realized I wanted to tone it back a little, so I took the time to remove varnish and adjust to something that made me happier...
...However, since I was adjusting that piece, I thought I may as well alter another.
I really liked this painting but had felt perhaps I had painted a background that was a little too strong. If I chose a more subtle backdrop color it would really make the Peonies flowers flourish. So again I stripped away the varnish and then made this singular background change.
...So I'm done adjusting, and have some other new works nearing completion.
