The Dove : in progress























I'm currently in the process of painting a new piece titled "The Dove" on the wall in my studio. It is a portrait of my daughter Paloma.  I've been taking photos as I proceed to monitor the changing forms.  I've been interested in how the work morphs into new shapes and challenges the eye to interpret them.  I feel like I'm watching some giant cellular organism reproducing. Paloma has told me it looks like Winnie the Pooh and the continent of Africa.
