Entering less-is-more territory

by Paul Burmeister

The progress of this painting has been recorded at regular intervals of duration. As my paintings progress, less appears to happen during the same duration as more happened earlier. Now, my inside voice—my informed intuition?—tells me to be cautious about going too far. What is the correct balance; what is the elegance not fully conscious?
