When all else fails, I go back to my roots and paint a chicken...or in this case, a rooster. I grew up on a poultry farm in New Zealand so if I can't paint a chicken, well then I might as well just hang it up.
I'm pretty happy with the way he turned out.
So I only got one painting done today - but that's OK....it's Sunday and I'm tired. I'm taking the rest of the afternoon off. I'm off to an artist get-together at my friend, Susan Kliewer's home. Susan is a fabulous sculptor. To see her work, click here. If I'm not in the mood to paint, then the next best thing is to talk art with a bunch of other artists.
