Voice of the Wilderness ~ 6″ x 6″ oil on hardboard panel
You know those days when you just can’t wake up? The alarm goes off, and your eyes creak open like a rusty door. Your body feels like a piece of waterlogged oak, and your brain feels like oatmeal? There’s no excuse, no one to blame. No late night party or bottle of wine…I’m having one of those days. My eyes are half open as I type, and I’m already on my third yawn, even before I’m done the first paragraph. The one thing that I successfully accomplished today was this painting! It seems that my brain works fine on autopilot…Yay! I didn’t have to think much at all for this one. An amazing wildlife photographer, who is a previous collector of mine, graciously offered up his artistry with the lens by suggesting I paint this photo he took of a wolf in Yellowstone. So really he did the easy part for me. All I had to do was paint what was in front of me.
