This is the first copy I ever did where I intentionally deviated from the original. I thought the composition was a little too all-over, so to give the thing a bit more structure I added some dark areas. It hangs in my bedroom where I look at it lovingly every day. I did another small Gauguin copy which one of my sisters has, and she finds it slightly amusing that whenever I visit her I visit it first.
