Oil on Wood 10″x18″
Not as gloomy as it appears, I chose the bird metaphor to offer affinity with all living things. This is the last (perhaps) of the smaller works. I’m now challenging myself with very large paintings with a less specific focus than the small pieces. So far, I’ve experienced lots of trial and error attempts with them. I may finally be gaining on them:)
I will not whine again about photographing shiny oil work, but this painting is so much stronger in person. On the flip side, the WP snow is perfect!
