Saw a Church exhibit in Tampa a few years ago. It was mostly field studies. Many were in various stages of finish or lack thereof. That unfinished work was very revealing. I loved seeing how he built up from transparent jewel like color masses. Don't think his normal habit was the one-shot painting.
