Sometimes it is not the subject itself, but the background that gives me trouble. In "Spring Pansies", painting pansies was a pure joy. As a matter of fact, it is the best pansy painting I have ever done. The background in the original version below, however, bothered me. It seemed too stark for such delicate flowers, so I modified it with lighter colors, softer brushstrokes, and my favorite dots. What do you think? Did I improve the painting?
