Repaintintgs

Over the past 6 months I have taken on a new project in the studio.  It has been occupying about half of my time.  I'm looking at older paintings on hand and re-conceptualizing them.  In many cases I find that the challenge of working with the existing image can be very engaging.  Changing the shapes of trees, the colours, atmosphere, horizon, and so on can produce entirely new works.  Paradoxically, these re-workings of older pieces take longer to complete than something entirely new.  Below is a sampling of these paintings, click on the images to enlarge.
