Latest progress on my latest unfinished painting.
I was determined it was going to be light and bright, but my paintings seem to take on a life of their own. Something happened along the way, and it became quite clear that it was not right and that it needed to become something else…and so I just responded, trying not too think too much but just go with the feeling.
It seemed to became a much darker painting, heavily textured and noticeably with an age-old symbol of humankind and loss, a simple cross, appearing. When it got to the stage it is now, I felt exhausted, but relieved.
