New Painting

Here is the start of my next painting.   I am taking a different tack–laying down washes of color without preconceived ideas about content.  But what a painting’s subject is remains open to debate.  As Barnett Newman said, the subject of a painting is often confused with the objects represented in it.  This is another way of understanding content.
