To spring break with love -
This is the fourth day I've worked on the painting, literally a work in progress.
As you can see, the upper part of the painting is in a rough stage. The tripes in the fabric behind the red box are a toss-up - to keep or not to keep, still a question. My present instinct is to keep, as the upper right hand corner of the painting needs something active, something near-vertical, like the stripes.
I'm already conceiving my next painting. As it is, the spring break will be all too short for starting another work.
Indeed I may spend the rest of the break trying to bring this one into fruition. Someone once said, a painting is never finished, it's given up.
I will post the final stage of the painting when it has been "given up."
