The composition is all off. The bird feels foreign today - like I've never painted him before. There's a good deal of space between the objects and they are so different, yet so similar... Can they coexist on this board? Their paths might cross but the two don't look like they will actually meet...or maybe they will, one could turn and change the direction.
During my undergraduate studies, I spent a great deal of time in the painting studio working with traditional oils. Teaching middle school art for the past 12 years has taken me away from those roots. This "one a day" project is aimed at re-inspiring that creativity and technique.
