Letting things evolve as I continue working on my series of paintings has lead me to this point. I am at a cross-roads. Visually they appear to be finished, but In my heart they are not. I want to take them to another level but I have so much time invested in them that I'm afraid I will ruin them and have to start over.
So, I took pics and played with adding more layers with my digital software and photos of textures from last year.
I really like the looks of the darker image. The person seems to be further back into the painting. I think I'm ready to continue now and I'll just have to be brave. If it doesn't work, oh well. I do have gesso.
Allowing myself the freedom to proceed, even with possible failure, is going to open my mind to other possibilities.
