Good Morning Merry Sunshine
Early Bird Special 20" X 24" acrylic, ink, oil crayon, and charcoal on canvas
The painting that started out as some sort of four legged creature became a bird, or rather several birds, including, in the words of my niece, "the camouflage bird" in the upper right corner. I don't know why I can't get away from birds. Someone once toldme that I was in danger of becoming known as The Crazy Bird Lady. Birds are, apparently, "a means of expressing (my) identity using symbols from the language of a personal mythology". Or maybe I just think they're fun. This painting is really more about morning than birds anyway. While I was at the beach, I took a long walk every morning, and my head was flooded each day with color and images, but mostly colors, beach colors: driftwood, sand, ocean, and sunshine. I think you're going to see a lot of these colors from me for a while.
