August 17, 2008

Although the weather today was an absolutely fabulous summer day with blue skies and fluffy white clouds, warm sun and now cool mountain night air I did manage to pull myself from outside and paint a bit. The new painting that I have started is comprised of 9 circles, all of which may or may not exist when I finish this piece. I have worked a bit on the first two circles and rough gesture painted the third.

The first circle is "Fall from Grace" which depicts Eve collecting apples from the "garden". The Second circle is the tale of Santa, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. Portrayed is Santa lying in bed, full Santa get-up with a remote control in one hand and a beverage in the other. The third circle is of a troll and three billy goats clip clapping over a bridge, inspired by watching an "after his prime" musician perform with difficulty a concert.
