10/14 ping creek 72x38" / by Philip Tarlow

just beginning this new painting. re-evaluated a few of the earlier ones yesterday, which i decided to re-work. i learn as i go, and i'm leaning towards being more vigilant about letting go of superfluous marks.

today after completing stage 1, i was tired. too tired i thought to paint any more. then something took over my body (hey, don't make fun) and next thing i knew it was 5:30 pm and i felt more energized than i did this morning, as if i had gone to the creek. it was too windy & chilly to go today, thank god!
