This is indeed a new direction for me, and one that time will judge as to how well I can sustain this direction.
This painting is one that started out as a palette cleaner, a canvas that at the end of a painting session had to accept the day's oil residue. In following days it would get paints dedicated to its future success. This is a gestural and very free delivery. Such a delivery is not easy to do consciously and on purpose, so we will see where it goes.
