24X30″ oil on canvas
Here’s a work in progress. It started out as a surreal thing with an elk head with antlers floating in the sky above the foothills. I lived with it like that for a few weeks and decided the elk was just too cute with its big eyes and ears. So I painted it out. I’m not sure what I was going for, I just know that what I had painted wasn’t it.
So now it’s just about the clouds and the hills. I’ll keep plugging away at it. I used so much paint in the sky that it will take at least a week to dry. That titanium white takes forever to dry, and when you paint it on thick to cover silly antlers… it takes forever and a day.
I applied to be a member of BOSCO (a Boise artists alliance) last week. There are about 50 memebers and they do an open studio event once a year in the fall and a few other exhibitions throughout the year. I’ll know May 1st if I’ve been accepted. Fingers crossed.
