"Break Point" a term in tennis, is used to describe when a player is one point away from a break in score. Lately this seems to sum up what I have been going through as an artist... work and work up to a important moment then start all over again. This month I present a drapery study painted in closed grisallie over about 40 hours worth of effort. While seeing plenty of room for improovement, I find this study as a significant example of many well orchestrated choices that have brought me to this "break point". The game is well in play, the score building but the match nowhere completed and it's still anybody's game. G.A.... making a point to take the break.
