A chicken painting, a studio sign…and some epiphytes
(Scroll down to see all the photos…there are 5 in this post)
Howdy! Long time no blog. It’s been…um, hectic and interesting…”interesting” as in that old Chinese curse: May you live in interesting times.
I painted two things yesterday — a chicken and the “that a way” part of my studio sign. The main “studio” and the stick I painted years ago when Pip and I taught a glass fusing class in my then-studio which was a three-car garage that I wanted to make look, well, NOT like a three car garage.
The glare is from the freshly applied varnish. This painting is 20 inches wide by 16 inches high…and I hope Gillian’s parents like it enough when they come to visit in two weeks that they will take this silly chicken back to Bethesda with them…for her bedroom.
That’s my potting shed…the barn/studio is, as the sign suggests, off to the right.
I’ve been living out here in the country long enough now that when I was trying to figure out what to paint on that wooden arrow, the first thing I thought of was “over yonder” !!!
And here are the bromeliads that I’m trying to establish under the oaks adjacent to the barn/studio…I took them from our old house where they had climbed up another oak’s trunk about four feet…lovely colors, huh?
