Unfinished?

But the lower reflection seemed much more alive, which is funny as the source image was unclear in that section and most of it is guess work. So I painted in the orange, adding what I thought was a little life in an otherwise traditional painting.

I then sold the piece to someone who had seen it as it was originally! When I told them about the orange, the sale fell through. gurr!!

I am however happy with the fished work. It is a lot more interesting than it was before, more fun. I like the conversation between the loose yet realistic handling of the green blue reflection, and the pop of the contrasting orange. I like that it is more hip, more vibrant, and I think that it adds a little contemporary color to an otherwise placid scene.
