Shades of Gray

 I have been intermittently working on this painting for about a week....not crazy about this yet.
Although when I look at the post from before this seems way better. I usually don't have an opportunity to look backwards.

Just Shapes

Arranging and re arranging shapes in  a square could take up days and days of my time. I try and look at it and see if it can get it any more poignant or more noticeable. How can this be more perfect, more thoughtful, more memorable?--Does this feel how I want it to, even if I don't fully understand the feeling yet? Without subject matter that relates to anything specific, these kind of paintings are deliciously open. They are, for me, the most difficult. Sometimes I play around with a jpeg of the image on the computer to see if I can problem solve the particular painting if I get stuck.....This one below is working now, although the actual painting is more dull and drab than this jpeg. This is where I want to go with it tomorrow.
