Wedding Party- a new painting

This diptych was started this summer. This shows something of my process when painting these narratives. A painting is started with a simple idea or character.

It may be
"rocks" and

As I begin to paint these I see other elements emerge and I paint them:
"person on rocks,"
"balancing on one foot." 

It continues from there...
"rough waves,"
"stormy clouds, but bright sunlight."

In this case, the painting was fairly well developed when the story continued to unfold and another panel was started:
"more rocks,"
"same rock pile or separate pile?"
"same pile but separation of ...." "of what?"
I did not know. See what came into the story next post!
