For the time being

I do believe this one is done.

Now I think I'll turn it toward the wall and do the next three as fast as possible. Thinking too much may be counterproductive at the moment.

Yes, yes, and yes.

Question: What are the dimensions?

The moth/mandala figure is so provocative, especially in that field. It's like a very deliberate, very specific, deeply red, spiritual kiss. Very carnal, in that sense of the word that means both flesh and sublimely flesh-colored.

And that's all I'm gonna say, since we're not "thinking" about this yet. :)

It's three by four feet. This is the size I usually work. Human anatomy size; the biggest size that will fit comfortably as a focal feature in most NYC apartments, and in the back of my truck. Occasionally I work four by five, which is the maximum dimension that will fit through all the doorways I regularly traverse. I'd like to work really huge, but expense and logistics have proved prohibitive thus far.

And thanks. Every time I finish a painting, I get a crisis of confidence--all I see are the spots that could be infinitely better than they are. And all my walls are so full, there's nowhere to prop it except facing outward. So I have to keep looking at the damn thing. ;-)

Three circles, a circus, 'tis quite Jungian, but moreover dialogue! They have been brought "in-ludo," into play!

Should it bother me that this image evokes a bit of fear?
