Spire of the South

So you're painting along and you've spent about 2 hours on something new and you're just about to close up the session.  You've got all the bones of the design in place.  All you have left in the next and maybe last session is the muscles, the light, and some jazz.  But then you see it... holy shit, how did I make THAT BIG of a screw up!

Then you sit, and sit, and sit wondering, pondering the choices, the solutions, all the options.  All the while, it whispers in the back of your mind, "Do I even bother to fix it??"

Well, did I?

From near Waco, Texas.  Sometimes I wonder if subconscious influences are genuine or only things I see after the fact and make up to fit a temporary mood.

Started in plein air at a small church in the village of Tjaereby Denmark.  I used Golden Opens in the field but then did an almost complete repaint in the studio in oil.

This one was completed quite some time ago but I never catalogued it except with some in-process photos on Facebook.  So I'm going to go ahead and count it on this year's tally of paintings.  From a criterium race several years ago in Little Rock.
