" The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak."
-Hans Hofmann

She agrees.

Here's what happens sometimes and I am only mentioning this so I can look back on this post and try an remember what I told myself, since this blogging thing is a journal, of sorts. When you are into a "groove" with a particular technique, that doesn't mean you should just keep adding more and more to a particular piece. Does that make sense? Does it happen to you?

I enjoyed doing this piece and sometimes pieces like this have their place, but I feel that I am more successful using fewer objects and drawing more on the copper.

Perhaps if I eliminate the color?

Harley wants my friend somepinkflowers to know that she would love to come visit, anytime.
