Day 272: Bucolic

Every day I double check yesterday’s post to make sure I’m counting correctly. On one hand, I think “wow, Day 27o-something? That’s a lot!” and on the other hand, I groan and sigh and pout and say “uggg. There are like a hundred more days. A HUNDRED!”. Don’t get me wrong, I really love artmaking. But you know… it’s a lot of artmaking. A LOT. Thank goodness I have this gallery show of mini paintings this month. Hopefully I will be able to send some of these pieces home with happy new owners, so that I can again go into my guest room without performing an intricate tiptoe-ballet-maneuver around all the stacks of canvas to get to the vacuum cleaner. It’s kind of like “hoarders” in there, except no food wrappers. Or flat dead cats.

On that note, today’s piece is “Bucolic”. I like the title because it implies a peaceful countryside, but this image features a mean purple storm cloud- with the bright sun muscling its way through, of course. 🙂 Also I measured these and they are 3.5″x3.5″x1.5″, not 4x4x2 as I’d been posting. My bad.
