Arranging and re arranging shapes in a square could take up days and days of my time. I try and look at it and see if it can get it any more poignant or more noticeable. How can this be more perfect, more thoughtful, more memorable?–Does this feel how I want it to, even if I don’t fully understand the feeling yet? Without subject matter that relates to anything specific, these kind of paintings are deliciously open. They are, for me, the most difficult. Sometimes I play around with a jpeg of the image on the computer to see if I can problem solve the particular painting if I get stuck…..This one below is working now, although the actual painting is more dull and drab than this jpeg. This is where I want to go with it tomorrow.
