Sometimes when you have a canvas that doesn't work as well as you'd like, the proper choice is to "mess it up." Or go at it with a palette knife and an attitude. This is one such. It used to look like this:

Now it's more interesting and messy, and intimate. I exaggerated the orange, and I'm glad I did.
Fun to see the changes, I think.

I know I need to do more work on the still life, where I find the composition and arranging of the still objects a real challenge. Landscapes still feel so much more comfortable for me; colors, strokes, and composition so much easier. Isn't this a sweet little one?

I wasn't so much interested in the strawberries, as I was in the lovely shadows they were casting.
I wanted to do this one "directly" without all the fussing and blending I usually do with still life. It's definitely painterly, as they say of this kind of work.
