Three years ago I completed this 20x30 canvas, painting over a previous "failed" painting.  It has been on and off the walls of the gallery and studio since then, gathering minimum attention.

 It wasn't until 3 or 4 weeks ago that I realized what a compositional blunder I created...four almost equal horizontal bands across the canvas.  I don't understand why it took me so long to see this.  In order to create something more interesting to the eye I've broken the horizontals with one dominant vertical, and will look at it for awhile to determine if it needs even more.  I'm thinking it needs something more in the lower right foreground.
