#28...kinda cheating!

# 28...
and I did kinda cheat...a little.

Yesterday, while on my clean up campaign around the house
I found this painting I had done in 2003 
while traveling in Italy with fellow painters.

I had just started trying my brush at Plein Aire painting,
and this is a view from our villa,
of the little village we stayed near in Tuscany...


I wish I'd taken a picture of this painting yesterday before I re-mastered it!
The colors were completely wrong,  way to bright and garish.
I added layers of softer colors, rearranged a few things...
and of course added Sally in.


So while I didn't do a fresh painting yesterday,
this took as much time to fix and I still enjoyed it...
that's important to me!
