Finish What You Started

Beginning To EndIn my previous entry, I discussed reconciling the gap that occurred with older paintings in progress and trying to retrofit them with my evolving style. In doing so, I acknowledged that achieving this in some works was practically impossible, so I opted to destroy several paintings instead of persisting with futile attempts to complete them using the knowledge I had gained verses the original path they were conceived and initiated.

I did manage to find half a dozen paintings that I could finish in a respectable fashion, however. In fact, they are coming together rather quickly. I will be posting pictures of them on my website in the next few weeks and will have them on display at my next open studio event. In the meantime, I will be developing new works in the style I am now just beginning to comprehend. I expect the progression to produce some interesting results.
