I'm constantly re-working paintings in an effort to capture my vision. In this painting, I was constantly struggling between giving emphasis to the mountain or the sun effect. In the end I felt that the sun created a more unifying effect for the painting. Here are two previous posts on this same painting if you'd like to know how I thought through the process.
