Of A Feather



Raw day today. For the first time in NINE months I don't have an 'agenda', or something specific to paint for. I don't know what I'll do with this, it's 12x12, I just love sparrows. I have a photograph of lots of sparrows on a bare tree, and I like to pick certain ones to paint. This painting was a lot about layers of color applied, then scraped away, as well as a note of forlorn, like a November day, although it's not quite that month!

Lozenge

As part of the "From Where I Sit" series, a hazy Summer sunset, one where the sun turns into a hot pink lozenge. This is just as the sun starts to lower itself to where it changes color, into the haze. A million different paintings, I swear, could be done from my front porch. Probably from everyone's front steps.
