If, by chance, a painting comes back to me after exhibiting in a gallery for a period of time, I will often reevaluate the work according to my abilities now compared to then. If I feel like I can add to them or change them in some way that will preserve the idea of the piece, but improve the technique or idea, I will do a rework before it goes back out again. These are three pieces that I have done this with. With each of these three, I pushed the light a bit further. The contrast has been increased in subtle ways making the light in them appear brighter, stronger. They are all three pieces I have really been proud of and I like them even better in this state.
