Not sure when it will be finished or what it will look like. The painting doesn’t really have a logical conclusion. I have discovered that I could just keep changing elements of the scene from now until forever.

Not exactly a welcome insight. Of course, “forever” has a pragmatic correlative. The painting is probably near to its final aspect. And I have enjoyed the doing thus far and continue enjoying the changes — and the studies and versions in other media. They have been great fun.

These stages are what happen when you climb pictorial mountains.

  1. Art is never finished in my opinion, but at a certain point you just need to let it go…you can always come back of course at a future time. (K)

  2. And yet … Or maybe there comes a point when the artist just stops thinking about the picture. Another idea beckons. Me, I’m not quite there yet. This mountain ain’t done with me, Kerfe. haha
