I took some pictures during the holidays from the family gatherings at the family tables I joined. I have been working on these pictures, slowly making the imagery more simplified. I have added 2 images at the bottom of this blog. The left one is the first version: paint on a print of a picture. For the second version I took a copy of this first version while continuing to simplify the imagery.

I think it is a great addition to the landscapes I made at the end of last year. This first reworked picture is not coincidentally a top view again, a view I'm growing fond of. Not all the pictures I took over the holidays are top views, but it's a nice way to start after the series of top views of landscapes. This might be the narrative element I have been looking for to add to my work in 2019.
