I cleaned my "bunker" studio today. It took me hours and I'm not really done. I stacked tons of bad paintings, good paintings and in-between paintings. I didn't blog the painting above when I initially did it (in Nov of 2010), because I did a 2nd version of it that I felt was better and I blogged that one instead. Since I don't have a new painting from today, I'll post this initial version....because, in retrospect, it's kind of a nice painting.
What to keep and what to throw away is a constant issue! I want to get rid of the bad paintings, and I should get rid of the in betweens too. It's a chore to make the decisions. This study will probably inch it's way into the keep pile.
