Vision Tree

                                                       Still painting over old paintings and enjoying the challenge of interweaving the colors of together for harmony.    I was most excited when adding the small red shape on the upper left balanced the whole composition.

Harmony of Routine

                                           It was the routine of going to my studio and painting over  this canvas   (for the third time ).   I actually left parts of the underpainting.   I seemed to be more inspired by painting  on an old canvas  than a clean white surface.   I like the texture and the history of the under the painting.  This one will not be painted over.
