And I started a new painting. I feel like the ocean tent series and these birds on a wire are somehow part of the same series. They have a similar aesthetic and mood, so I decided to revisit the ocean tents with my oil paints. By lunch I had something that looked like this.
Though I kind of liked it that way, I wanted to keep going, and by the end of today:
There are some things I'm planning to develop and clarify in this painting, but I've got to give it a little time to dry. Oil painting teaches patience.
