Progression of a vision. 3 paintings of the same subject over the years.

I thought I would show this same subject over the years of painting different versions. There are times that what I've painted is not what I had envisioned. It's a tough pill to swallow sometimes. I've abandoned paintings that I've started because I knew my vision wasn't in the painting. So far, I'm most happy with the last on the left. The one on the right has survived the impulse to stick it in the trash many times. I'm glad I held on to it, because it reminded me of what I really wanted it to be.
