Paradise Reworked

You all may remember this painting from a couple years ago.  It was juried into the Northeast National Pastel Exhibition in Old Forge, NY.  Well, Don, my fellow Guide on Wetcanvas took it home with him because I wasn't able to go up and get it at the end of the show.  (THANK YOU DON!!)

I finally picked it up a few weeks ago while home visiting and packed this painting and another, Rain before the Snow, that was also in the show, and shipped them both home.  Well, one made it just fine, but this one didn't.  Even though the frames and glass were in perfect condition, it must have been thrown into a truck and landed face down because a ton of pastel was dislodged from the painting and was all over the glass.

So, yesterday I unframed it and have reworked the areas that were ruined.  Am still not sure about the mountains, but I like them better than they were originally.

Beautiful work, Paula! I didn't see this one before, I guess your friend had it for a while!

I'm so happy that this one wasn't ruined in transit. Beautifully done.
