05-04-16 “map of pain”

9.5×7.5″ acrylic on matboard

This week, I revisited this old painting, adding new paint in the background and over the whole thing. In the original, I was imaging pain I was having several years ago. It began as an abstracted figurative form with a splotch of dried paint collaged on. Now I think it looks kind of map-like. So, even though the piece looks completely different now (and that pain is all but gone), I wanted to include part of the genesis of the painting in the title.
