Coronation of Nighttime

This painting began looking very different from how it does now. This is the result of not being satisfied with okay. It is often tempting to stop working on a piece when it looks "ok", while not being completely happy with it. Growth is only possible by taking chances and working through obstacles. This piece went from being a not-so-interesting collection of abstract forms, to being a dark, richly layered evocation of mystery.
