This is the third bird this week. It was fun to get to these, because just before I had the “breakthrough moment” on the first bird, I had written a postcard to my son Wes:

Now I am at work trying to paint. So far today, I suck. But I have hope that it will turn around — no, an EXPECTATION that it will turn around eventually. In the meantime, back to making sucky art. 

I just looked at some of the other things I was working on and they are fine, actually, but for some reason I didn’t like them when doing them. Which perhaps was what “pushed” me to keep trying new things (and what caused me to pull out the Yupo paper). On another day I might have been happy with the first pieces.

Have a wonderful weekend!
