Something to Cleanse the Palate

Every now and then you have to take a step away from what you’re working on… and work on something else.  This is a piece I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but I’ve been so wrapped up that I haven’t had the time to really explore the idea.

I painted a piece a while back and I was fairly happy with it, but I always felt like I’d missed the mark a bit.  I was trying to get a feeling across, but it really didn’t solidify in that piece.  Later on talking with a friend we came across a print of the same piece after the first application of paint.  He said, “I wish you would’ve stopped painting right there”.  So did I.  Every since I’ve been wanting to go back and try again.

So there you have it.  I do prefer it to my first effort.  I think it’s a step in reconciling some of the more figurative, monochromatic work with the architectural stuff.  It’s like when your left brain and right brain touch.  Little flashes go off.

Cheers,
