Work in progress: Down Among the Briars

Down Among the Briars, in progress. Oil paint and wax medium on canvas, 40 x 30".
This began as a pattern of cracked concrete where I saw a figure in energetic motion, dancing. As I worked, it shifted; it told me a story about being caught and fighting to get loose, to get to a different and more open place, to rise up.

At this point it is more finished than not, though there are some adjustments to be made, and a few better photos to be taken once that's done.
