It’s one of those, “I know it when I see it” words. Not ‘composition.’ It’s the difference between pieces I will like a week after they’re finished, and ones I’ll want to paint over. It’s what’s missing in #704
It’s what I’m working to correct here–the underpainting of #705–another canvas stretched on an old window frame. The painting below, #693 (now at International House) — has structure.
This is my current obsession.
