Orange Barn in Place, 2009, Oil on Birch Panel, 18x24
Today I am going to paint the cradles of these finished paintings black:
I did two large underpaintings yesterday. One is on the left here (30x40): and you can see where I had to stack other paintings to get them out of the way until I can get back to work on them. My son came home with an awesome ceramic sculpture that he made in school (on the table, far right), there are works in progress on the table, prepped panels on the floor and the vacuum cleaner is up in the studio so I can suck up all the dead flies and the flying ones too. If I can catch them that is. Heh. Now there's a mental image for you.
The other underpainting (24x36):
Plus a bonus shot of my chickens today:
They are on alert because our dog was barking a lot when I took this, and since she has actually killed a few of them in the past, well they should be concerned.....
