This is one of my favorite paintings! I began it on Monhegan Island, Maine. I almost gave up on it when I got it home. I worked and over-worked it to the point of throwing it out. When I reached the "last straw," I just took a Nupastel and scribbled all over it. It worked!! Ever since this experience, I now just put paintings that don't work away and take them out weeks, months, or even years later. You'd be surprised how many eventually do work. This piece actually won an award.
