You may recognize this image because I recently painted it in a smaller format. I normally don't paint an image more than once but I thought this one would be worth enlarging to an 8"x10."

It's interesting to see the differences in the style that happened because of the change in size, which one is better is probably subjective. I like them both for different reasons.

The composition had to change slightly because the aspect ratio is different; the smaller painting is more rectangular whereas this one is closer to being a square. The taller format allowed me to include more of the sky and water.
