As hard as it is to step away from the journaling frenzy, I've been trying to get back into the rhythm of painting every day as I have three big shows to hang in 2013 and I never seem to have enough pieces to fill the venues. My ongoing show is titled "The Motley Menagerie" which means I am working on all sorts of critter paintings, from birds to fish and horses to beetles.
This fox painting is my most recently completed piece and I have to say, it isn't my favorite. It isn't terrible but there's something about it that bugs me. This is actually the second fox incarnation on this canvas; a previous attempt is buried under a coat of gesso. However much this piece annoys me, I'm going to leave it be and move on to other work. There's no time to waste on satisfying my inner critic.
