And Whose Vapors We Slowly Coalesce

2nd of 3 new paintings. I'm showing them in the order that I painted them so, based on critique and general feedback, I've considered new approaches and tried to refine the process and content. This one I struggled a lot with, especially compositionally because there are a lot of elements to balance. I remember teachers telling me the concept of your eye "resting" when looking at a piece and that was something I had a very hard time achieving with the composition. The composition and color were inspired by seeing a folded bag behind an electric green silkscreen. Also, I tried to stay away from symmetrical, central, and figure dominated pieces after noticing a lot of my personal work has those qualities. Thanks so much for the feedback on the previous piece. More critique is always appreciated.
