OK, so not sure I like either of my proposed solutions. It still looks like a big propeller, so I'll still have to play with the fabric some more. And, the table surface is definitely going to have to be lighter and less red, so let's just call this an underpainting for now. I did lighten the turquoise and fiddle a bit with the greens, but my indecision about them has left them mushy; need to restate with authority. Still like this painting, tho, still seeing possibilities. Eventually, I want to get the paint on there so thick it looks like a swarming mass of colored worms; the overall composition is really pretty simple, so I think it can handle it.
