Sunflower Pair Redux

Sunflower Pair

Sunflower Pair Redux
Not often, but every now and then, I go back into an older work, because of the small voice in my head that whispers, "What were you thinking?"  My goal here is not to create an award-winning work, but to try to problem-solve in a completely different way.  Doing this is a bit like dancing while wearing a ball and chain, as there is little continuity, the rhythm being completely disrupted.  The work on the left is color-driven.  While the colors are electric and amiable to me, it lacks the distinction and simplicity that I now look for.  The work on the right was reworked, only from memory while trying to channel a better design.  Doing so simplified the work.  It is more easily "read".  Am I happy?  Well....I enjoy both about the same, to tell the truth.  But I am more satisfied having worked through this issue.

To redux or not to redux.
