15x18 on birch panel. I could not get a shot of the depth of the colors and so here it is. I hope you can see it. Maybe click on the picture and maybe get a better look. How many times have I said that..LOL.. I do not even think that will help but ,one day I will get it right...
It has been a nice week with the spring like weather. In the 70's in the day and cool at night.
Could not ask for better weather. I have been working on this piece for awhile. I put a coat of gesso and then I put paper down that I had varnished and then I put layer of layer of color down. Then it just did not look right. Then I sat there looking then I say the black bird come into my head. So I sketch him and then painted him black. Just the way he is suppose to be. He traveled and traveled to get to me. Where he started from no ones knows. He has traveled for years. You see him visit so many different artists and they capture him on their canvas as they see him and then he moves on. I know one time he was in CA and one time he was in New Mexico and then on and on. This time he stopped at my place in this little state AL. He has left put he is still in my memory and I am sure he will show up again . I think he was flying toward CO and from there he was leaving the states heading toward Brazil.
So watch out he may show up at your house and onto your canvas.
May you always dream in color.
