The Painting that Never Ends

I've been working on this painting since December 26th.  I paint a little bit, then let it hang around for awhile. Then, after starting at it for a few days, I'll go back to it, trying something different.  I have a real "painter's block" with this one.

I started out in a geometric mode - 

then I tried a little pallet knife action -

today, I decided there was too much pallet knife and that from now on, whenever I don't like something, I'm just going to paint it black.

Now, of course, this reminds me of a Rolling Stones song

"I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore, I want them to turn black"

So, we'll let this version hang around for a few days and see how it goes.
