After some consideration, I decided that to leave the background and foreground in their abstract state denied the painting the cohesiveness that I'm used to bringing to my work. The lack of cohesion gave it the look of what I term "wall art", which is my decorator term for those things that you'll hang on the wall to decorate but can't be considered Fine Art. Another term, "Sofa Painting" is one you're perhaps more familiar with.
So, to keep this in line with my body of work, I decided that the agave should be planted in its garden and this is the beginnings of that.
More to come
