Garden Rhythm – Evolution of a painting

DSC_0467

This was painted in tandem with “A Child’s Garden” a some what more orthodox thematic approach. It occupies a piece of canvas that was first part of a large painting from 1994 “probation Broken”- A year of discovery, a year of trial and error, a year of great productivity and intense feelings.

I kept this fragment, just as I have many other works, because paintings remain constantly evolving. They reach conclusion  at unexpected times, and sometimes they fail to reach a point of resolution.

There is some strange hope that gets stirred up, with the promise of success. Success to the stranger and for those over familiar – a new flower.
