I ended up really liking this painting. Every once in a while I'll have a painting come together very naturally and this was definitely one of those paintings. As I've said, I don't have a very big studio, and often during the middle of working on a painting I'll bring it into my family room where I have a little more room to step back and really get a feel for a piece. Another benefit to bringing a painting into the family room is the great input that I get from my family. They helped with the decision of adding the final layering of brown stencils which really made the painting feel complete.
