Pete's painting, that refers to this one:
- just sent this to Virginia for her first look at it, then commented:
- i look at this painting and the way the white areas are treated. it inspires me.
- i worked the 'white' areas in the new painting...
- on the day before it was finished, it looked almost identical to the finished state. however, i made about 50 changes to the painting on the last day.
[ don- take out the first sentence, later.
- there was a short period when i was trying to track paintings with catalog numbers. it's hard to do, like documenting the editions of etchings. sheesh.
