There are some canvases I carry around with me for ages. Twenty years to be exact with this one. So many times I painted over the same composition thinking: this time I will get it right. I finally gave in, after several attempts this year and determined it was time to let go.

I chose colors, textured objects, heavy gel, wire screen and stormed the canvas with no end in mind. Now the canvas is full of activity and intrigue. Much better idea than what I originally intended.
