Blue Train

As the painting developed, it went through the usual changes. Areas are created and then often subordinated from prominance and just as often completely eliminated as new shapes and more harmonious colors are tried. It is a struggle and a challenge to find the resolved image.This work saw an ultramarine blue, as well as other blue hues become a large expanse. The shape of the blue area reminded me of the interior of a subway car. So in this instance the blue area that was developing as a background for the other shapes became the foreground.
