Preview of Work on the Easel

Untitled
22x28
Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

This painting may be finished and it may get a rework,  I haven't decided.  I love the colors, but it seems to lack a strong enough structure of lights and darks.  I will just let it sit around the studio for awhile and see if it asks for new passages. 
I worked on a very textured canvas.  One I had painted over a painting that I was not happy with.  In the texture I used a combination of liquid gesso and matte medium.  It gave me a very different surface to work on than I am used to.  I loved experimenting like this.  But sometimes it's a winner and sometimes you wonder "what was I thinking?". 
Time will tell the fate of this piece.  I'll let you know.
