|Hitchcock, 8x8, Oil Painting On Hardboard, SOLD|
It all began while taking reference photos for a painting of birds on a telephone wire. I noticed that my photos of crows seemed to have humanistic personalities. I also became interested in the Daily Painting movement. I am not a quick painter and didn't have the luxury of painting every day, but I made a commitment (to myself) to try to paint a small painting in one day once a week. These wonderful crows seemed like a great place to start. This is my first "painting in a day". I have to admit, starting it was very intimidating! Did I mention that I am not a quick painter? But he just seemed to be saying, "I dare you to do it!" So here he is - I have named him "Hitchcock" in an homage to the movie The Birds.

Art is a journey.
It is a collection of experiences as unique as the individual creating it.
It begins with our first breath and ends with our last.
It is about finding beauty in every situation, even apparent ugliness,
and recording it for others to see.
