Later in the evening I was talking with Jeff Nachtigall over the fence. I suggested that my spending two or three hours on a single image is forcing me to be patient and to be attentive to detail and that this is beginning to affect my work on Sock-Vile. Jeff (who just cut his own hair with predictable results) talked about how painting is all about layers to him. In agreement, both the painting and the after effects work with Sock-vile is about layers. More to think about. Things are making sense.
