This is a painting I am currently working on for my show in May. I am sure I will regret posting it, but that is the beauty of the delete button. At this point I think it is about 50% of the way there. Part of me wishes I had the guts to take a painting about this far, or a bit more, and leave it. It is still fun and abstract and it is more about the paint, marks, and mood than about "what it's supposed to be". Painting is fun, but at the same time it is PURE AGONY, on so many levels. Robert Henri said, "A work of art is the trace of a magnificent struggle." That is the truth, that guy knew what he was talking about.
