Sort of a Pinocchio story...

This is one of my older paintings that remains one of my favorites in spite of it's age. The picture is from a sort of Pinocchio story that I thought up for a short film idea. I'd still like to revisit the idea further.

As I was getting ready to post the painting I thought it would be fun to revisit it and try and apply the new painting techniques I've learned without completely repainting it and therefore overshadowing what I connected with in the original image.

I feel that I was indeed able to transmit something more from my original daydream into this new version of the painting that I didn't capture in my first attempt.

Remember to click on the images to see the full size versions.

Which do you like best? Please leave your ideas...
