About the series this piece is a part of:
I generally work on large canvases, but a need for smaller less developed pieces continues to arise so I came up with the concept for this series. Making use of my current working process of energizing pieces with initial explosive line work, and then developing to a finished spot before blowing it out and pulling it back in again. With this series, I will not blow it out, but continue to refine until it reaches the next complete stage. Each piece gets to a stopping point for show or print, and then if its still around I continue to develop. It will be ongoing and prints will be available for each stage, even after the painting itself has left that stage behind.
This piece is divided into three sections using vertical lines. Each section has a flow into the neighboring section, but they are broken to make sure they take on characteristics of their own.
Just slight changes from the previous installment. The shapes are all clarified and the last few decisions before paint have been made. By this time Im getting a since of the left side being a dessert. The middle section is an emotional twist/turmoil, and the right section seems to be taking flight and I get a sense of an offering of some sort.
