i love how things present themselves when one's ready for them. in the last week or so i've received 3 possible opportunities to show new work in a variety of venues. no guarantees yet on any of them, but the mere fact of the opportunity itself is exciting and encouraging and makes my senses tingle and my fingers twitch.
most of my recent work is inspired by the last couple of years that i spent up north, surrounded by wild beauty, the trees holding sway to all the creatures within.
i'm finishing up a yellow warbler painting, but the next one i'm sketching out is a barn owl. i've had this fella in my head for a long time now, and see him perched on an aspen branch, surrounded by songbirds hiding in the leaves, playing peekaboo.
