That song is stuck in my head from working at this, really trying to make this painting “become” what it wants to be. The lines of communication just weren’t there, and I couldn’t hear what it was trying to tell me. All I could hear is that song “Mama said there’d be days like this, there’d be days like this, mama said….” This is 5 x 8″ 300# Arches cold-press. The good news is, this has turned from a watercolor painting (yeah, it’s underneath, somewhere) to an acrylic painting, and with acrylics, it is never over. Amen, brother Ben, and please pass the sauce!
Every painting is a journey. Some journeys never get there, and we just have to turn the page, and know that the sun will rise tomorrow!
What I learned:
1. I truly love Quinacridone Burnt Orange.
2. I love texture products. OK, I already knew that.
3. Yeah, that’s probably it.

This weekend, I’ll be posting my round-up from the fabulous bird art we saw on July 8, when we last celebrated Draw A Bird Day. Peace and happy WEEKEND to all!
