I started this work last week.  I believe it is now complete.  

I added some narrow lengths of wood.  One I painted the same grey as the lines and it starts to bring the shapes out into three dimensional space, instead of illusionary 3D space created by the painted wall.  There is plenty more to be done in three dimensional space.  Now my challenge is to incorporate this into my work again.  More wood, foam core, paper, cardboard, fabric, plastic - all out and off the wall.

I love documenting my work.  There's always something else to notice through the distance a camera gives.  I love the angles and smalls works that exist in the larger work, just by using cropping.

What's next
I want to make some works in places where I can respond to the site.  However, since I don't even know how to begin to think in that way, I am absorbing as many artists that work site specifically as I can.  I have lots of questions and lots of time to get answers and figure it out for myself.  The likelihood is I'll just have a crack at it and see what happens.  But I'd love to hear some differing approaches to site.
