purple rock / by Philip Tarlow

                                                                    purple rock at the ned of my painting day today

back from basalt, i returned to my studio this morning and began work on one of the earlier motion series paintings, which will become part of the POST MOTION series. this new series will not be numbered. rather, each painting will have it's own title, and this second one (the first was pink rocks) is titled purple rock

i may leave it in this state as i white over another of the less successful motion series. the object is not to be stuck working on one painting, allowing me to leave it in a state where more is hinted at than fully elaborated upon.
