One Red Leaf
This was one of those paintings that took a while. It's not that It was in the process of being painted all of that time either. It got off to a blinding start, and like a a fire that isn't put together quite right, it burned its self out very quickly. At one point I began to un-paint, and then to paint back into what was left. I abandoned it several times, and because the studio is between the kitchen and the deck, It continued to mock me as I passed by. Little by little I would add somthing, and then this morning the two of us had to resolve this thing between us.
