A Do-Over!

This is my excuse for not being in my studio. Lots to do in the garden and we
just added four new raised beds to fill next year.  What am I thinking?!

Is anyone still out there?  I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted.  Yikes!

This work is a "do over" of the piece I posted on April 26.
I just wasn't satisfied with it and I had to mull it over for a long time.
I finally decided I was definitely over-thinking the whole thing.
And I was scared!
But this past weekend I just went for it.
There were parts I liked, but the original work just felt rigid and strained.
It also lacked the kind of layering I was hoping to achieve.
I feel this is a better end product and place from which to grow further.

I learned a lot through the whole process on both pieces and have started a new work hoping to
maintain the layering and the looser quality I got to in this work.
