Evolution of a Painting, and still changing- Seattle art studio, WA

Very often my initial idea is transformed in the painting process. The painting takes over and starts telling me what to do. I have to just give up control and let it lead me. I don't know where this painting is going. It is suppose to be a double portrait, so Ron will reappear at some point, somewhere. I now just try to do what the painting tells me. Sometimes I never figure it out. Sometimes I am taken places I couldn't imagine. I am hoping this one continues to speak to me.
