Taming the busy

This is the finished "Venn Berrygram" painting. It may look frenetic to you, but it is very much calmed and tamed from its wild origins. Peer down to the early layers and you will sense the State Fair bumper car ride meets The Gnat energy. The hair on my head stands up for dread!

How do we pick the blueberries? How do we make choices in our art? Can we make things clearer? Can we let go of some parts to make the picture better? Simplifying without losing meaning, you think. You are right, and it is a life's work.
