The sky grows over the bridge...

"PDX Spring Night"
(in progress)
36"x18" acrylic on canvas

Today at the gallery, I worked on the sky off and on. Some of the paint I mixed was darker than I expected, but it also turned out better on the canvas than it looked in the mixing cup.

Most of what I did with the silver works for me, but the upper right hand corner. I also think it looks more cloud like than I intended. At this point it doesn't matter too much because it will get obscured as the sky grows.

My friend Katherine calls the layers of paint, "History", and that's what's developing here. It's history in the making.
