This is the final evolution of a painting I worked on for almost two weeks. It started out as a nonrepresentational abstract, then evolved into somewhat of a geologic abstract, "Sonoran Journey" (see below).
I posted this painting on my website, Facebook, etc, but I never really warmed up to it. When I'm not happy with a painting, sooner or later (sooner in this case), I start messing with it.
I posted several progress photos of this painting as it morphed into "Good Fortune" on my Facebook page.
It finally took a generous application of crackle medium, and premixed stucco patch to get the texture I could work with. After that, it pretty much painted itself.
