April 2001

For the next few months I will attempt to record the painting progress of a project that has been in the works for about seven months. Rather than explain the work in advance, I think it may be interesting to show you the developement of the work without an explanation of what it "is".

The painting will likely go through stages that look pretty bad. That will sometimes be due to prepratory underpainting, random development, and at other times, I've simply messed up. A  significant element in the painting process is covering your mistakes, or better yet, taking advantage of them.

There are nine pages of pictures and comments.
