How well do you read?

Limitations of blogsites aside, you might check out the 4 small images I've posted on FaceBook in regard to "how well do you read?"  Often when beginning a painting, I know - sort of, kind of, have a general idea - where it might be going.  However, as the work progresses I find that somewhere along the way it begins to metaphorically speak to me and that's when I have to stop and READ the painting.  What is it saying, where does the image and surface want to display a message, where does the color just want to blend in and say leave me along, I'm happy here?

With the work in progress photos on FB, I display a work in progress being turned into 4 separate views of the same painting.  Do you think you'll recognize the 30" x 30" x 2" piece when it's completed?  Does one of the images stand out as your favorite read? 

While you decide upon your favorite read right now, please mark December 4, 5:00-7:00, Woodward Canyon Winery Reception (Walla Walla, WA) on your calendar right now.  You're invited to visit, sip a delicious wine or two and to perhaps do your own reading of all my new work that will be exhibited that evening.
