I was never satisfied with the initial version of this painting, so I worked on it a bit last night.  I decided I very much liked the sense of stacked and possibly falling boxes on the…

It Feels Great to Be Back in The Studio Again

I don’t think so.  I made some very small changes, and I like it better now, but it still doesn’t seem quite right.
