The Second Time acrylic 24x36

For 4 days I struggled with this canvas, working on a painting that simply would not work. It was one of those times when the original concept and composition was flawed, and all the re-working was for naught. Two days ago, at the end of the day and after the umpteenth effort salvage the piece, I picked up a palette knife, open several jars of paint and covered the entire canvas. Yesterday I completed this painting, a totally different image from the underlying painting.

I was reading the other day that they discovered a new way of seeing what was underneath the painting. Now painters are in trouble. Ha, ha, ha....
