In these last 2 days I've been finding some resolution with paintings which I've been working on....this is always a good feeling. Resolution. Just put this image on flickr and someone whose work I admire comments that it has the feeling of an altar....nice! Uplifting to be given that gift.
This painting has been hounding me for almost a year. The trees were taken from a fading print out of a photo of mine, but the house form appeared, insisting on its presence there. Sometimes when I leave a painting, it is hard to return for fear of destroying what is appealing in order to resolve the whole. Having entered again and come back out with a more complete painting, I feel revived myself, not just the painting. Still no name has been decided but am posting it anyway, just to give it a chance to be.
