This was previously painted in 2011 or 2012 for a challenge - although I don't recall which challenge. During those years I did as many online challenges as I could find. I felt as if they were my schooling - a chance to try different things & learn a few things. And doing the challenges, much like doing daily paintings, gives an artist a chance to improve their techniques.
I did rework this painting in 2012 (and tweaked it in early 2013) - I was not satisfied with the sun rays on the back wall. But I like them now - not too strong, not too weak. And, of course, that splash of bright blue. I love working with that cobalt blue!
