This is a 16 x 20 piece from several years ago done in acrylics. I liked its folds and cloth-like appearance, but as a painting, it didn't work. I put it away in my" future renovations" pile.

What, don't you have a pile like that?

Last week, I took it out of the pile and began to rework it. I decided I "saw" a bottle lurking in the curtains there.

Painting negatively, I isolated the beginnings of a still life, preserving some of what I really liked about the painting, but re-framing it radically.

More next post.
