Omens and Prediction

Worked on the newspapers. When it's really really really dry, I'll take on the lettering.

Blocked in the bird. Resisted the strong temptation to delineate each feather's rows of brown bands. It would just turn the under painting into murk. Who knew you needed as much patience as skill or ability?

I wonder if I can make the April 30 (dry, signed and wired) deadline for the May 8th show?

  1. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

  3. Hi Virginia,

    This is so beautiful. Yes! You can make the deadline. If anything in that message sounds deliberate. It is. Lovely work.

    Take care,

    Barbara

  4. Barbara,
    Thanks! Encouraging words like yours to keep me at it. That, and a double espresso ;-).

    I decided to change the headline on the newspaper, so just took a quick jpg of today's headline which actually has the word 'hope' in it.

    back to the easel,
    Va
