Path Less Traveled

This one is quite big (30in x 40in). Finishing this painting was not linear at all. Last July I took it four times to the spot in the woods, battling mosquitoes in the steamy summer heat. I was not sure if it was finished, so I left it "stewing" for a while leaning against the living room wall. After looking at it for several month it became more clear  that I needed to work on the path. A few weeks ago I took it back and focused on the broken up morning light that gives interest to the leaf covered forest path.I think it improved tremendously. I am going to show this painting in an upcoming group show.
