Hello again! I am back in Mississippi and school has started. I have been struggling with this painting. Here are the stages...
Almost finished in NYC
At the Open Studio
Back in O-town- I decided to crop the painting down to 4' x 4'. I also changed the background color to a greenish chromatic gray. Unfortunately, I did not pack them correctly so I had to do some corrective painting. Future self, remember this and wrap the rolled paintings.
Here is it is with a background. It is not done but it feels more resolved.
