It seems that there will just be times when life gets in the way of creativity.  🙁

My past two months have been full of all kinds of activity — too little of which has been painting, but I finally cleared out my schedule and the studio enough on Sunday to get back in there and paint, and man, does it feel good.

The painting I spent the most time working on Sunday afternoon is still a mess.  I think perhaps some canvases are just cursed, as that one has been ~20 different paintings over the past few months, and I’ve not been happy with any of them!

This one, on the other hand, came together fairly quickly and directly.  I may do a tad more to it; haven’t decided yet, but I can say I’m fairly happy with most parts of it, and with the whole.  Yay!

It isn’t enough to have the eyes of a gazelle, you also need the claws of a cat in order to capture your bird alive and play with it before you eat it and join its life to yours. That is the mystery of painting.

  • A beautifully conceived and executed drawing, and imaginative title, very nice.
