WORK: Details From a Large Painting in Progress

I'm working on a 52"x52" painting at the moment in my brand spankin' new studio space.   It's my first time working large in several years (I just haven't had the space for it) and I forgot how the paintings consume my mind when there is so much picture plane to account for. Often I fall in love with certain areas, but then later those areas might have to be changed or obscured for the good of the whole composition. It's very hard to let go sometimes! Anyhow, I'm only halfway done, so I won't reveal the whole thing, but here are two moments that I love... Which may or may not survive the painting process.
