I think leaving space in a painting is difficult. I want to paint it ALL like a kid with candy. Mine! Mine! Mine! After seeing MIDLAND DREAM exhibited I thought the cubist girl just got in the way of some thoughts one might have looking at the wide open spaces. So I painted her out.
Now isn't that nice with all that space? The sky really does do that sometimes for anyone who has not resided on high plains, in the desert. Not often, but does.
