Phase 3

“There is nothing I cannot paint over” – Richard Diebenkorn

Finally finished! This painting took me 7 months to get right. It went through several distinct phases –  1.Something new  2.Trying to make it work  3. The Ah Ha moment. Oh, and in between phase 2 and phase 3, I hid it behind a stack of old paintings so I wouldn’t have to look at it everyday and wrestle with ideas about how to resolve it.  I like the end result, but I am intrigued by it’s first life….hmmm maybe time to try something new again.
