Fly Away Home

mixed media on canvas; 24" x 24"
Frantic work continues on canvases for my latest show due to hang October 1st.  I have about 15 pieces to complete in 12 days so from now, until I have to load the work into the car, I'll have my head down in the studio trying to get things done.

I try not to play favorites with my work but I seriously love how this flying egret turned out.  For some reason, I always throw a couple red, black, and white pieces into my mostly rainbow-colored show and they are typically the first to sell.  (I'm currently having a love affair with Payne's gray so there's a splash or two of that in this piece.)  I'll have a hard time letting go of this one.

I adore this Michelle! The movement, the layering, and the transparency of this piece is incredible!

It would be so difficult for me to pick a favorite. I must say, the little quails hit a spot in my heart. Your show is going to be spectacular, Michelle. Be prepared to sell out! Donna
