"Boy Turned Cold"

I said the last painting I redid was going to be the last one, but as I was about to dump this 1995 painting into the trash can of life, I decided to spare it and rework it instead.
I've included the original image, on the left, the reworked version painted over the original is on the right. Gone is the distortion and the obvious symbol of cold, both in this painting and in my life. This IS definitely my last re-do of an old painting, since all of my paintings are wrapped up and ready to move. Whenever that will be.
Original and new title:
"Boy Turned Cold"
18" x 24"
Silverleaf, Acrylic on Masonite
Reworking it all, TONY

Hi, i think "rework" meant painting over old canvases he had unsold that he no longer fancied. I am so glad he sent the BEFPRE pic so taht the image is not lost.
