DETAIL of motion 28

3:40 PM: motion 28 at the end of my painting day. 

at work on motion 28, 20x20"

2:45 PM: today i started another 20x20" oil painting which, along with motion 26 & 27 is an experiment for a larger version destined for a denver gallery. the challenge is to have it be loose & painterly but not so abstracted that the viewer has no sense of where they are located in space.

in other words, there needs to be a discernible foreground, middle ground & background , but without falling into the realm of a traditional landscape. more white space, less descriptiveness.
