Yes, this is the painting "Window." You can see pentimento, particularly in the upper right hand corner. I like the upper right hand corner, but I am not comfortable with the man on the left. At this point I don't think I should say much more about the images found in this painting, so I'll write about process. Yesterday I entered the studio with the discomfort I wrote about in yesterday's post. I made a warm-up drawing, wondering how I could assuage my discomfort. This is the drawing...
This drawing removed the maudlin couple and the man on the right. It felt much better, despite the exaggerated stare of the man (that would never get into the painting). The rest is history. The painting is far from complete. The man on the left of "Window" is not correct. In pondering this problem I finished the day with the following drawing (I am thinking about replacing the man on the left with a man on the edge of the painting, looking out).
