Think this piece, 48″x48″, is finished. I like the mono-colored look and the horizontal strokes used for the background. Something different.
They say it takes two people to make an artwork: one to paint and the other to say when to stop. The process can be an interesting conundrum. It’s easy to constantly tweak, fix and improve, but the risk entails overworking an artwork to the point of weariness that was meant to be fresh and vital. Much better overall to try something new. Just go for it. Just own it.
Congratulations Leslie – a very provocative piece. Awesome energy with the striking light racing through the portrait and the angle of the face.
