DAILY PAINTING: First of all, I realized--don't laugh--that this is a vertical composition. One of my instructors always said that a composition should work no matter how you turn it.
Lots has happened: The focal point is better defined, and some of the extraneous "action" has been toned down a bit (the long white strokes you see in the lower middle is mostly transparent white and should be less distinct when it dries).
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
