I think its well enough to leave alone, next time maybe do a closer crop, more mystery, but as it is, it has a style that mesmerizes, your creamy thick paint and laid back attitude mixes well.

I'm quite happy leaving this alone from here. Its always tough knowing when to stop and knowing when something needs a little more.

have fun,

Bocote

Yeah, I vote for leaving it, Jim, this is a great next step. More stylized and designed and good glops of great paint!!!

Thanks, Shawn!

Aye, Jerry, she is fair and lovely!

Thanks, Diane! My first tendency is to go in very close and create a very dynamic composition. I have been trying to back away some and still keep the composition strong, so this, along with other recent paintings, is an attempt to present a bigger, but still interesting, picture.

Thanks, Bocote! I did go back in and do a little more. I added some light around the foot that is resting on the couch. It appeared, at least in the digital image, that the foot was floating. Now it seems to be comfortably resting on the couch.

Thanks, Mark! Actually there are not a whole lot of globs on this. I did break some "rules" in this. There is more, and thicker paint in the very dark areas. Everything else is pretty much scumbled onto the very smooth and glassy gessoed wood.

Thanks again to all for looking and taking the time to comment. Jim
