Today I'll finish the leaves and flowers in the foreground of the Grey Squirrel. I've yet to name this piece. Often names simply do not pop up in my head. Why is that?
Perhaps it's because I am so excited about creating a new painting today. I do like starting new paintings. There is an element of enthusiasm associated with a new creations! Of course I also have to pull off the vision in my head of it. The challenge is often that which drives me.
I'll pull out all the envelopes of photos compiled for each new concept and make the very difficult decision of which I should paint first. Wolves? Raptors? Skunks? More Owls?
The one thing I think I miss about oil painting is that I can start as many as I want because there is the "dry time" factor. It's truly a great excuse! With acrylic, I'm finding that's not necessary. But, I'm still starting one after another. I do love putting those ideas down in concrete and committing to them.
