The Human Form 1

First try at painting.


This is a small painting that wasn't working at all, so I sanded it down and suddenly it looked better. Needs more work to make it OK, but it now has possibilities.

It's changed again now. It may end up consigned to the bin.

I like it a lot and it sort of reminds me of Mim's recent nudes.

Great Idea!!! I was telling my daughter today to make a picture she wanted to discard, work...some of our best ideas I have had is working out my mistakes.

What you did reminds me of De Kooning...He would work and re-work a painting like that for a year. I thought that was interesting...No wonder artist were starving. lol.
