Well, I got a bit radical today. I felt that this piece, overall, was a bit too bright. Moreover, while I really like how the upper portions were evolving I was not happy with the bottom portions. I sat for some time to figure out how to change what was there. But sometimes you have to let go. I let go of the parts I didn’t like by using a black glaze over them to reduce the red and reduce the “noise”. I am happy with the result and I feel it gives me a fresh perspective. I think I was stuck because I didn’t like where this piece was headed. I have now given it a new direction and I feel great to have taken the plunge. Now I have to go make guacamole for the Pats versus the Ravens. GO PAT’S!!!!!!!!!
