Never become too attached to a painting

Lately I have been reworking paintings that just never quite felt right to me.  It's a great feeling to be able to paint over something and give it a new life....and you learn so much along the way. Once again, I have reworked this painting from an older post. The finish is reworked in palette knife.

Thought a white background would make everything stand out...and it did.

Decided to add the watermelon because I loved the color and it pointed to the flowers.

Background felt cold so changed the color of both background and table. I still felt that everything was too tight, too perfect so......

I worked with a palette knife to start taking away. I wanted to say more without the tight detail. It was an experiment and the jury is still out but I can't wait to rework more paintings.  Also, keep in mind the glare on the wet paint does not do the painting justice.
