No, no surgery. Just a makeover courtesy of acrylic paints.
I did the first painting in February 2013 on a piece of masonite, 10″ x 8″. It seemed perfectly fine to me at the time.
But then, months passed. I grew dissatisfied. The painting bothered me for some reason that I didn’t look into at all. I just was bothered.
Finally I took matters seriously (the poor little painting kept turning up at the bottom of piles of things I was going to work on, and I kept leaving it there). Changes had to be made.
So, I made them.
The end. I hope.
