changes to easter creek & purple rock II / by Philip Tarlow

2:53 PM: easter creek needed an intervention. it gave the impression of 3 distinct areas of activity that were not fully integrated due in part to the lower portion of the painting, where the space was not functioning…..kind of like it was dead space. you can see what i’m trying to describe below, with yesterdays version on the left and todays on the right.

4:47 PM: you can forget about the one on the right. i went to fix that white bit that i introduced into the central portion & screwed it all up. there was a lot going on today. k. was here & did truly remarkable work, and i had to go back & forth to the house to supervise some repairs, so my focus was broken. i’ll get back into it tomorrow.on the right, a detail of easter creek before my unsuccessful intervention.
