Time just flies....

DawnI 
I finished this rooster this week.  Not sure how I feel about him yet.  He is collage, acrylic paint and Pan Pastels on cradled wood (8' x 8").  I am still experimenting with color, contrast and composition and trying not to be discouraged when a work is less than exciting. I am giving him a high gloss tar gel finish- just because.  It's hard to tell here but he is extremely glossy and that brings out his colors a bit more.

I am working in fits and starts - some of the fits are lying on my studio floor - need to think about them.  I started 2 new paintings today. Too early to tell.  They are in the adolescent stage - hard to tell what they will be.  

I am linking this week to Paint Party Friday (happy 4th birthday to PPF).  This is a wonderful web site hosted by the lovely Eva and Kristin - who are as faithful as they are talented and sweet.  Go visit and be inspired. Thanks for visiting and have a blessed and art filled weekend!!!

  6. Your rooster is lovely. I have feel the same about paintings that I "finish" - I have to live with them for a while before they make the final cut :) Good luck with the new starts and getting them past the ugly teenager stage.

  10. Cool! I love the blend of colors on the rooster's silhouette, and the faint print on the sun's silhouette gives it a lot of interest. Blessings!
