|I wanted to do a night scene, so I painted the wood black.|
|I printed an actual photo of a firefly to draw from, and attached it to the corner of the wood.|
I do this a lot, sometimes to copy exactly, and sometimes just for a guideline.
|Then it needed a cat. I had no intention at all of including a cat, but|
the muses insisted. It makes me think of Teresa, our boy cat named after
the comic genius Teresa Burritt (who is female). Teresa prowls the night.
May the Frog Blog rest in peace. Long live the Frog Blog.
This painting, which looks better (more in focus!) in person will be going to a local show on December 5th. If you happen to be in Wisconsin (or Northern Illinois, like Wheatbread Johnson) on the 5th of December, it's at 4 PM- 8PM at the Old District #1 School House in Mount Horeb. And you are all invited to come and witness my nimrodic powers (my powers , as they may be... perhaps not as great as Wanda Gág's) in person.
