When is a Painting a Painting?
I was working on an abstract. I had added texture and the first layer of colour. This was most of day one. Then I had a converstation with a person about one of my very very early paintings. She liked it. I had already reused the canvas so that painting was no more. But that conversation influenced me and I found myself reusing the colours and the thoughts. The new work is not at layer four of paint and I am just not sure what I should do to complete it. I hope somenody today says something to me that makes me decide. I have included a rough picture of the present state will be interesting for me to be able to compare this with the end result.
