# 708 Reconstructed Painting 1974
Back in 1974 I made a painting very similar to this image. I think the color and composition here is very close to that painting. I remember being very excited that I was able to imagine a painting I wanted to make and being able to get very close to the idea. Minimalism was something I knew of but wasn't overly interested in. Yet I found that every painting I made was becoming more and more essentially minimal. I did understand that this was an eventual dead end but at the time I wasn't ready to give it up.
