hot off the easel. This painting was a great learning process for me, exploring many different ways of applying paint than what I'm used to. I didn't play anything safe with this one; some layers started out by nearly obliterating the ones below. Usually if something is working in a painting I leave it alone in fear of ruining it, but with this painting I took the opportunity to experiment. The dimensions changed from the original canvas, and there was even a time when the laptop was painted out just to see what it did to the composition!
