Two years later, I'm looking at windows

This spring I am teaching a senior studio thesis course, BA Portfolio, at Flagler College. As part of the class, students are asked to maintain a record of their weekly activities on a blog, uploading a minimum of three process shots a week, a reflection on the work and any influences from the week. In an effort to keep up production during the school year, I am going to follow the assignment.

As evidenced by the last post, it's been a while since I've acknowledged this platform...March 2015.....

This week I worked on two paintings that have been going for sometime, so the changes were incremental. One is of my kitchen window at night. Below is the before and after of the moves I made on Monday night, I've been slightly lost on how to resolve the bottom half of this painting for a while, I think I am getting there.
 

Here is where it started. I've abandoned the entire reason why I started the painting initially, which was looking at my sink and the window/plant. For whatever reason, it fit better in my viewfinder than on my panel.

Here is one of my other painting in the works, I have been documenting the progress of this on Instagram Stories, but apparently wasn't saving the videos. Its of two windows in the corner of a room, during 3-4 different times of day. Again, this painting has been progressing steadily...on Wednesday I found another patch of light and worked on the bookcase. I also adjusted the sewing machine stand and central chair for the 100th time.
