Work in Progress

In the studio again, before our trip to New England next weekend.  I'm working on a new 12"x24" mirror with a looser style of painting.  Actually, it was inspired by nothing more exotic than the cardboard I use to cover my drawing table when I'm painting papers for my collage pieces.  I looked at it one day and thought I should try to duplicate its layers of colors on something else.  So, I thought I'd share a work in progress:

Here's the cardboard 'inspiration': 

And here's the mirror frame in progress: 

The mirror does have some of the same loose, painterly feeling of the cardboard, but it doesn't have the same feeling of layers of color...yet. 
Back to work!
