|"Tuesday" 24"x36" oil on canvas|
|Version 1. It started like this. 36"x24"|
It started about eight months ago. I thought I had the route planned out.
|Version 2. I rendered up the bird. I was so optimistic.|
|Version 3. I liked it so far, but there was something missing...|
I had to mess it up. That is my M.O. Bring on the hate mail.
This didn't just happen overnight. This painting sat in my studio for a few months with the red sky and semi additions, taunting me, making me sad.
|Version 5. This is calmer.|
So I decided to take it in a whole new direction. I tried to keep my favorite elements, but in the end, of course, they all had to go, because that is how life is. I mean painting is.
|Version 6. Put a bird on it.|
I liked the bird, but there was a problematic area around it's feet. I tried.
