Most of these works in progress have been rotating, sometimes to easel II, sometimes to easel III. A painting is developed overall, without trying to finish one part and then the next. One tries to keep the whole thing moving towards a unified goal. Just so, an exhibition is ushered along in the same way, without finishing one painting and then the next. This is the only way to create a unified body of work.
