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.
