Evolution of an Image

evolutionHow do you know when a painting is done? Some artists have a very concrete vision from the onset, others like myself propose visual problems and then try to solve them. I obliterate most of what I do only leaving faint traces. The ghosts of paintings past. Mapping the creative process is an engaging endeavor ripe with insight and regret. What if you push it too far and it all falls apart? What if you destroy the superior image? Artists have been painting over their own images since the beginning. Some for simple economic reasons and others for the constant desire to do better. Making art is a never ending action. The solution to one composition is the problem to solve for your next. Sometimes you end up nowhere near from where you started.

Another painting from the residency. This is a bit of a departure for me; as I am starting to incorporate the landscape in a more direct and literal fashion.
