"SPRING ETERNAL 2," 10131, daily painter textured floral still life © Carol Nelson Fine Art
No painting is safe hanging in the home of an artist! This large 24x48 painting has been hanging in my bedroom for two years. Actually, the third one down is the previous incarnation of this painting. You'll notice the original version had a dark brown, solid background - dramatic, but kind of depressing. For two years, I've looked at it wondering what was wrong. Today I took it off the wall and said to myself, I don't like it and I'm either going to totally ruin it or make it better.
It had a coating of Soluvar varnish on it which I had to remove with mineral spirits before I could begin revamping the painting. Almost everything I did to it was on the background areas. I can't believe how much more vibrant and colorful it looks now. Amazing, really.
