This is a painting that has gone through a few variations over the past 8 months. I posted the first stage of it here : last May.  I had a conversation with our own Toni Tiller about it and she exhibited once again her insight with a suggestion concerning the editing of an unresolved area of  this abstracted design. The painting successfully translated form, color, value through rhythm and movement  but became confused and clunky in the ‘head’ area. I repainted that territory and pulled it into a more tangible architecture.  Its done, finally.
