11 Feb Two More Lazarus Paintings
Jan 10, 2011. What seems to have been a success in reworking that old long-abandoned flying Eagle painting (it’s been selling!) got me interested in other paintings that I was storing closest to the dumpster, and had given up for dead. One is a snow at the Market scene based on a shot I took in the 2009 December storm:
I think I might need to see how people react to this, I’m not sure if I like it or not. (I walked all the way to the Market to get the reference shots, which I had a good time doing. The snow wasn’t this deep and there was no green truck.)
This is a Mule Deer buck in the Peloncillos of New Mexico, my home away from home. Unlike the other ones, I see work for me ahead on this one. Detail might give it character, we’ll see.
This has been absorbing most of my time for the last half-year, it’s almost like something’s wrong with the substrate trying to get things right. I’ll be working on the singing male Yellow Warbler and the Nashville Warbler tomorrow, it never ends. I started it in 2007, and hope to have a revised version out by March, Warblers of the West.
