Here we are on day 10! This project has me engaged completely, looking at art to find my reference paintings, reading so much about these artists, then taking flying leaps by abstracting these figure paintings after first simplifying and making them my own. So it's back and forth and I am having fun! This painting is perhaps the greatest departure from the reference, and I have mixed feelings about that. On the one hand, I'm excited of how far it took me, on the other I wonder, "Have I gone too far?" "Where will I go next?"
