This is a painting that was ‘finished’ last summer. And yet this week while this piece was back in the studio I dug back in. I didn’t think this painting was telling the right story…or rather wasn’t telling the story in the right way. We’ll see where it goes. Last year the original idea for the painting got sidetracked by a tangent idea. Here I am trying to get back to the original concept. Also taking it away from being strictly a narrative painting while exploring a few other ideas of composition.
this is last’s summer’s version.
