Back Away From Your Painting.....

It's really important to view your painting from a distance several times during the process of painting a picture. You can see what is working in the painting and what isn't, what is crooked and what needs a different color.
This painting is a commission for a home in Napa. That explains the grape vines. It isn't finished yet, I've got to back away and make a few more changes.

Looking at my painting from the kitchen

Looking at my painting from the hallway right outside my studio 

Looking at the painting from a yard away right inside my studio.  Oh my gosh, I need to change the .....What do you think I should do?

I think you should stop backing away!!!! It looks good from way over here! (actually it's something we should do and often forget)
