5x5 oil on canvas
It's been so long since I felt even the smallest urge to paint, that I wondered if I would ever return to the easel. So I started out small - really small - to see if the brushes still worked. The last time I tried, they didn't and I literally put everything in my studio away to ride out the Great Storm of Artistic Frustration of 2010 (so dramatic, aren't I?)
They worked this time and I started a much larger version of this little warm up painting. It will be interesting to see how it turns out, since 30 x 30 doesn't exactly translate into such an economic collection of brush strokes as a 5x5.
And in the news... two of my raven paintings recently found a home in Alaska. Which seems very fitting since a lot of Raven stories originate from that area. And my large Raven painting "You Talkin To Me" just got juried into the fine arts show at the MN Fair this year.
