I am sweating bullets...I wipe this baby out about 4 times and finally brought it to a conclusion! I was actually going for almost full abstraction. Pushing the limits was my intention and still maintaining some semblance of reality. I was looking at the work of Kathryn Kehoe yesterday and that is something that I admire about her work; especially her still life paintings. If you haven't had an opportunity to look at her work I encourage you to do so.
As I have said many times about my work...I walk with one foot in abstraction and the other in realism. It is pretty much the way that I approach life. I like to go to the smallest denominator and then see how close to representation I can come.
