Changing Completed Paintings

I just finished making some changes to a painting that I "completed" a couple of years ago. The standard logic warns against doing this because you are going against your initial determination that the painting is finished. I have many paintings that I have completed, but not to my satisfaction. Typically it is a compositional problem. A little time and enough thought will usually allow me to work through the solution, and then I can finish the painting to my satisfaction.

The Third Sorrowful Mystery

This is the first in a series of Rosary Mysteries. The intent is for them to be abstract images that assist in meditation and prayer. I will probably increase the contrast on this a little and then it will be complete. For those of you interested in the mysteries, here is a link -

Hurricane Katrina

The photos and reports are so awful! What a tragedy.

Meditative Art

I reported in an earlier post that I was going to begin a series of painting based on fabric folds and textures - sort of a representation abstraction. I still may do that, but I have begun a new project that I plan to devote most of my time and energy to. I am going to begin a series of abstract images based on the Mysteries of the Rosary. Hopefully they help the viewer reflect on the mysteries while in prayer or meditation. My first painting will be titled The Crowning with Thorns, and I should be able to post a photo within the next week or so.
