Revisiting a still life painting

I wanted to do some painting today...but I didn't feel that I had time to launch into something new...so I did the next best thing. I found an old painting that I could strengthen. I sanded the painting down lightly and then I applied oil paint and medium judiciously over the top of the old version.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Dark Pitcher, 2010, Oil on canvas panel 8x8

I like your style so much. This one is very pleasing to the eye. The blues and oranges almost make me thirst for a cool drink from that pitcher. It feels like a hot summer day.

I checked out the old one; this new one is stronger. When I think you can't get any better--you do. Amazing.
