1:41 PM: landscape series 3 did not pass the hang in in the house test. after a few weeks, i was just not compelling enough. so i brought it over to my studio this morning, rubbed it about with gamsol & launched back in, using the 11/1/12 plein air oil as my guide.
as with landscape series 5, the underlying image provided a rich counterpoint to the new image, which i believe actually surpasses the 16x16" plein air oil.it has quite a powerful presence, and we'll see when we're back from visiting with dimitri & our 2 grandkids how it strikes me.
