Old Painting, New Start

Nearing the year end, I am looking for a new challenge, project and painting subject to take into 2014. I have some paintings on canvas that have been rolled up for decades. They weren't improving in condition having been stored and moved so many times. This one was an attempt to work on a larger than usual scale. Its dated 1984 on the back. That puts it in my Neely Farm Studio days in Norcross, Georgia. I could see that I only worked on it for a day and then never picked up on it again for 30 years!
Back then I was freely waving my airbrush around from all four sides. There was no preconceived design or subject. I just liked taking my sketching method directly to large canvas and seeing what I could make of it. So here I go. Let's see what I can do with it.
