Work In Progress - cactus

here is a work in progress

  I am aiming at two goals  

#1   finishing all my unfinished


#2    not being afraid to ruin a piece that I know needs something more but am not sure exactly  what  or how……

    so here is the first "movement" of this piece started in spring 2013


  1. beautiful. great goals. #1 is hard, I am not good at that, sometimes I just abandon. #2 SOOO important. "Kill your darlings" as they say. I find it hard to let go of favorite parts of something - but sometimes they have to be sacrificed for the better "whole". And sometimes even if the whole isn't better in the end, you've had the experience and that's the important thing, the art is sometimes only a byproduct.
