took five days of work. More description. But not everywhere....by this point I had a fair idea of the horizontal flow and the rhythmic pattern that would, hopefully, lead the eye around the composition. But we artists know that with every gain there is a loss. Sometimes wonderful passages were edited, sacrificed, for the whole. At this point, the loss for me was the dissipation into pieces-parts, almost too much reality for me. Preparation for a bit of chaos, a bit of destruction that had to be done for the sake of simplicity. Too many things. Too much itty bitty. Too many words in the story.
