returning to "sound of a flute over the river" / by Philip Tarlow

3:35 PM: yesterday i painted over this one. today, rather than mess with a good thing (refreshing early morning, which i started yesterday & has a lovely spareness) i returned to sound of a flute. i continued working on it until just a few minutes ago, subtracting rather than adding. it’s a definite improvement over it’s former state, which you can see BELOW left.
