Triptych Week 2

Into abstraction: while continuing to work on the triptych, it began to feel stale and and too romanticized, so I eliminated the undulation on the horizon line and added some strongly (strongly for me) abstract stroked. This creates duality as the representational plane which recedes into space as certain strokes work to flatten the image, so the painting at once works on a three dimensional and two dimensional level. I often wonder if i should stop after only a week of work on a piece. I lose some of the spontaneity and subtlety in the development. Will the outcome prove? Lets hope so.
