After this painting sat against the wall of my studio unfinished for months I've decided to rethink the whole thing. I'm going to complete it in oils and go for a very different feel. The old version is colorful, but harsh and cold, I want something warm and cozy and inviting.
Constantly dissatisfied I re-paint every little element of this painting several times each.
Finally it was finished and I loved it so I hung it on the wall until I started wanting to take it down and fix this part and that part. Fortunately someone bought it before I gave in. Leopard Girl 48" X 18" oil paint on recycled plywood
