My fourth piece had as its working title, Jane Tells Dotty to Sit in the Corner. I painted myself into one corner after another after another.
After another after another.
Sitting in those corners eventually forced me to breathe into stillness, to both remember Jane's saying, I want credit for keeping the video on while I'm screwing up my demo for this lesson (she gets full credit and my deep gratitude) and to remember her stating in the lesson explanation, Each mark and each layer is essential to the process, even if very little of the original layer ends up in the final piece.

|Busy and Quiet #4|
The bright green/red/orange area is busy, <25%.
The textural echo of the bright green collage pieces, obscured and to the left,
is transitional, also <25%. The rest is quiet, with texture and subtle color value shifts.
