Finally finished one of the two paintings I'd been working on before life got so frenetic. Must finish the other one so I can start an illustration job, due end of June. THEN (or sooner, depending on how the illos go) I can turn to my koi series --- I'm getting closer every day! Bit by bit, we work through that great To Do List called life! May I just say that I've never been so glad to say 'this thing is finished' than I was earlier today, when I said of this swimming-pool-with-two-butterfly-chairs painting, 'This thing is finished.'
Acrylic on board 16" x 20."
I made some quick sketches of bits that were washed to the ground after a sudden rainstorm this morning. I love the way fallen twigs, leaves, and petals make a kind of found calligraphy on street surfaces. I am sure their messages are worth deciphering. Don't you wish we could?
