Reworked Taos Sunrise

Merry Christmas to all! We had a great time with my kids and especially my little grandson who made this Christmas especially sweet. I had to rework this last painting after a tough review. I decided I not only didn't like the foreground but the background sucked too! Hope you can see the difference. The mountain way in the background is now flatter and not so humped looking. The next mountain now has some shape that forms a more interesting shape against the further back mountain. The foreground weeds and bushes have just been simplified and very slightly lightened so they pull forward a bit more. Also added a bit more fire to the sky and now I like this painting-whew
