never leave your luggage unattended

I needed a painting, or at least wanted to create a painting for an upcoming show at the parkersburg art center, so I searched around the studio and found an old painting that was just sitting around and I decided to work with that as the jumping off point. It was a total abstract piece and I began adding some figures. some of the shapes reminded me of luggage. Flight was the theme for the show. In this beginning part I have a flying figure behind the main figure's head which I removed today when I worked on the painting, I am really struggling with the face on the main figure , I will post later the changes I made today.
