12:39 PM: some delicate changes have happened. BELOW left:yesterdays version and on the right, as feygele appeared moments ago. the first thing you may notice are the changes to the central image of the branch, which is lighter & therefore less dominant. more subtle are the changes to the dotted areas of siena, which have lost their edges for the most part, to some expansion of the beige ground, (see the image on the right) and now move with the snaking curves of the rest of the composition. some texture has been added to the rock forms on the upper & lower left.
as i sit here about 20 feet from the painting, i’m seeing more possible improvements to the overall composition; lets see how it goes…i need to stop in about an hour for a phone conversation followed by a meeting mikela & i need to attend.
