cheers!

That’s it.  I was going to write a nice tidy artist statement and then I thought….hum.  Sometimes it’s better to figure it out on your own rather than have someone dictate it.  Say, don’t those clouds look like an equal sign?  Whaaat?  No.  Surely that’s not what she meant.  Reminds me of King Kong though.  huh.

It’s a work in progress…..that, unlike my usual process, hasn’t been shared…until now.  It was awful.  Don’t get me wrong, the idea was fantabulous but my pallet fought me until today when things began to reconcile, as if by magic.  But, it wasn’t magic….it was persistence.  This red I’m using seems to be lacking pigment….
