Final crop of "For You!" 6" X 8" Pastel
For me it's really important to "live" with a painting for awhile before I feel I'm done. "For You!" from the previous post sat on a shelf where it was visible while reading, computer work, etc. I gradually came to the conclusion that the REAL emphasis or center of attention was the bow on the package. The other added volume to the painting, but I don't think it necessarily contributed to the whole. Therefore, I cropped it down to fit in this 6" X 8" frame. It's not the best photo, I'm afraid, because of the glass, but you can see my reasoning for the change. This decision-making is tough!
