The paint is old and moldy

Sometimes it takes distance to see what is right in front of you.....

Talk about Hallmark. But really, I usually need some time away from my work to figure out what is wrong with it. I was not completely satisfied with the direction of "Lift" so I kept working on the 3rd round and finally feel happy with the results. Its difficult because this not for anything except another group piece and so having only myself as a critic makes it that much harder to know when it is done. And really, done is such an arbitrary thing. I could keep redoing this painting and every time it would look different. At a certain point it becomes like a stilllife.....boring moldy fruit.

So here is the moldy fruit.
