This painting, below, is one of the most recent, yet unfinished, paintings in acrylic that I’m working on at the moment. It’s 28″ x 34″. Rather than liking it for it’s color, I find it an interesting mental exercise. I questioned the boarder, wondered about removing the orange edges (covering it over with the “white”) or strengthening it in the interior. Without posing that question to either of them, I texted this photo to both James and Connie (they both have a strong sense of what “works” visually). Amazingly, both “critics” responded with the same thing:  bring more hints of the orange into it! James also said it is fun to “study.”
