More is More or Less is Less?

I like stories within stories in my art so usually more is more. I was working on this piece, Second Sight, a 12" x 12" mixed media on panel, and I stopped at this point. I like the simplicity of this piece but wasn't sure if it was really working or I needed a break. I loved the triangle between the hands and the face. Anyhow, after several friends yelled STOP at me.....I did. It has a very cloister/nun-like kind of feel to me and I do like it.

The day before I had done Black Magic Eight Ball, a 12" x 12" mixed media on panel, which is in the more is more vein of my usual work. I love those magic eight balls and to put it in a classical setting made me laugh.

Looking forward to seeing what today brings.
