I think I’ve finished my new painting – “Mountains, Clouds and Waves” – except for the placement(s) of my signature(s) and I’ll do that before my final post for this mini series.
What I do want to speak to just a bit – because it now seems so obvious but only became apparent to me as I was finished – is why & how I finally felt this work might be finished.
Working my way through my progressions to my current and possible final stage, I’d mentioned in earlier posts I compared the left 2 panels with the right 2 panels, and initially deciding to lighten the right 2 pieces vs darkening the left 2.
Here’s a start to possible final stage look —
— with a larger current possibly final version below ( still not getting the best shot, cloudy most of today w/a peek of sun ).
And below is the answer to what I shoulda known as obvious but didn’t ’bout when & how I’d know the work was done —
— that not only do the right and left 1/2s need to work well with each other, but that each adjoining panel needs to work with it’s right or left ( or both ) panel-partner!
There are, in a 4 piece panel painting, not one, and not 2, but 4 pictures here :
- the total painting of 4 panels
- the right 2 panels
- the middle 2 panels
- and the right 2 panels
Here’s what they look like isolated in those groupings —
In this case, with this painting, the image is a strong continuum.
But occasionally, in other folks’ work, and probably my own in some uncertain future 😊 the panel could be related, but not part of a continuum. I’ve seen some of this ( of the little I’ve seen/studied so far re panel paintings, in Joan Mitchell’s work. Here’s an example at the bottom of this really interesting article ( Living Your Wild Creativity ) about her & her work –
And if you like her work, here’s some of my related posts about her and her art –

Stay well everyone! Stay tenacious, lol! 💕
ps – tomorrow I hope to take a break from my painting, other than the multi-signing for my 4 panel painting, which involves way more than I’d thought ( of course 😊 ) but…I’ll be posting some of the tweets etc I’ve been sharing ’bout SXSW, including a photo memory of Sheila & myself at an event back in 2004! 🎶 ❤️
