I can detect some of what is needed.
But, I can't yet imagine how to create what is needed.
Artist Marion Hedger recently wrote about the phases of creating a painting, referencing an interview by Nicholas Wilton of Mark Eanes in which Eanes talks about three phases each painting moves through and how each phase has three phases.
So far, the one or two times I've tried in the moment to identify where I am in the process? No clue.
Today, when I stopped for the day, I thought, I am smack in the middle of the middle.
But maybe not. I may be at the beginning of the middle.
Or, possibly, the middle of the end.
The one fact of which I am certain: you'll see this painting at least once more, and it will have changed.
