Have you ever felt your life was one big mess and you just have to plop down and untangle it all before you go another step? I've been feeling a lot of that lately and this painting reflects it well. The undulating white forces trying to make headway but they are hampered by the scraffito blue lines from making any progress. This is the first version. I later changed it to add more contrast by darkening the blue and adding more dimension to the white swirls. Some days I like the original version and others I'm satisfied by me trying to deepen the experience.
