"Deadfall" Revisited

I've been kicking around the possibility of reworking some paintings I "finished" last year. As I heard Jim Coe say a few years ago, "A painting isn't really finished until it sells." True enough!

"Red Rambler" 12x20 oil
I wanted to revisit this motif in a larger format. I painted a small study last year, but wanted to do something a little more involved. Worth the effort!
Below I've included an image of the study for comparison.
