[acrylic on masonite]

I was in the middle of working on this in the UGA art studio, when Bill Paul, 
director of the Ga Museum of Art, came in - I was sitting in a chair
looking at it, and he asked who did it - I said "I don't know, I was 
just admiring it" - he said it was the best painting he'd seen in the 
student studio in five years, so I admitted I was working on it.
He said "don't work anymore, it's done" - the tan stripes were
masking tape still on the masonite surface, so I removed them and
painted them on and stopped work.. he had no idea it was my
work because it wasn't like anything else I'd done, my work
had organic forms and was usually much more complex
