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.

Painting Development 

Stage 1:
Jeremy Bakers Own Your Twist Stage 1 Work in Progress

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.

Jeremy Bakers Own Your Work in Progress Stage 1

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.
