Johnson Farm, 16x16
Ever have pieces that just don't turn out? Every year on New Year's Day I go through the pile of paintings/drawings of the past year and start tossing. It feels good to unload and dump the pieces that went south for various reasons. Occasionally I'll keep a few of the rejects and see if someday a solution might appear.
This painting was saved from the reject pile seven years ago or so and I stumbled on it the other night looking for a new panel. A solution came to me a few minutes later and here is the result. Now there's a chorus of rejects all begging for a second chance.
