I have a few paintings from a couple years ago that never really worked, so I painted over one of them a couple months ago, but never got it to a finishing point.  Last week, I reworked the painting one more time.  It’s a bit rough, and looks slightly different and much better from a distance, so I may either re-work it (again) or paint what I like from it in a larger more intentional work.  However, some of my friends like it just like it is, so I have decided to live with it for a bit first.

  • What I like best about this painting is how it suggest depth but at the same time remains very much “paint” (yummy, buttery paint). There is something very pleasing about that sensation, I think.
