AFTER LIVING WITH THEM for awhile, several of my paintings did not stand up. The designs were strong, but they had too little paint. Juxtaposed with my other work, they looked thin, insubstantial.
Revising “Lakeside” and “Thunderstorm,” I added much more detail than the originals, sacrificing simplicity for depth.
I took a simpler approach with “Abstract 67,” adding layers of brighter colors.
“Hemlock Garden” and “River View” have been sitting in my studio since summer, awaiting completion.
