The Bed comes to life...

"Paco in the Big Bed"
(in progress)

20"x16" acrylic on canvas

I spent much of today working in my studio and helping Corrine do several raku firings. Both were big successes.

The bed in the painting is coming to life, and I'm itching to be painting more of Paco. "All in good time my painter friend." I have to tell myself.

For the past 6 months I've been working on small canvases or wood blocks, it's nice to be painting large again. It's great how quickly the story unfolds with a large brush. Then when all of the imagery is in place I go back to add the details that bring the story into reality. If my paintings were a book or movie, they would be done in flashbacks.
