Oil painting on textured linen (12 x 16 inches)
"Yesterday morning when I came back to this painting, the background was in beautiful grays. . . then I reverted back to deep rich color. Today I'm asking myself why it is that I can't seem to keep a painting in the gray format. I like this painting but it isn't what I was striving for."
