Better Photo of Bigass Agave

                       Bigass Agave 48x48" oil on gallery wrapped canvas

I did some sort of upgrade on the Blogspot template and now can't seem to find a way to edit past posts, so you get a brand new post. Nothing new, except that the photo is ten times better, owing to my wonderful hubby generously carrying this behemoth outside to the back porch this afternoon so I could utilize the wondrous sunshine.
Don't know if this beauty is finished, but it sure is in a fun spot, don't you think?

More Progress on Bigass Agave

Since I left you last, the Bigass Agave has gone through quite a transformation. When I was in yoga class last evening, our teacher read a quote that pretty much summed up what I've been attempting with this painting. I'll have to paraphrase since my memory isn't all that great: be willing to give up what you are to become what you can be. In painting, that might apply to this piece. I've been willing to paint over what I loved to see what else this painting was capable of becoming. Enjoy the process. Its red period Its blue period Its most fun incarnation yet!
