Imagining the Still Life

I had started this painting (you can see an earlier version of it in a previous post) and when the still life was taken down, I had nothing to go on in terms of finishing it.  That is, except "what it needs."  It wasn't all that hard to identify what I wanted to finish/fix, but some of the choices would have been a lot clearer with the still life in front of me (never a photo -- sorry to those who believe in them, but I don't work that way).  It was actually freeing to deal only with the painting, much to my surprise.  This painting will dry in time for my March 21 show.
