 I revisited this painting of the tropical plant “Bromeliads”.  I painted the background with a bluish tint to reside more in the distance, to enhance depth.  I also painted more yellow and orange for the glowing center of the plant.  I like the results and it’s one of the best paintings I have done.  Sometimes it’s ok to look back at an older painting and give a few touch-ups.  A painting isn’t done unless you say it is.   And now it’s done.  Yeah!
