Painting Over

Painted this quick study (it's a weekend and family calls!) over an old painting I rejected.  Used lots of thick paint (reading about Van Gogh may have influenced this).

Here's the old painting I turned upside-down during the first, sketch stage.  It was a rose that didn't make it.  Qiang Huang says... "Flowers can't be painted, only suggested."
