I continue to paint loose, trying to stop before everything is clearly defined. Still I think you can figure out this is two canaries in a cage. Actually there is a story behind these two canaries.
They are from a box that over thirty years ago contained a bottle of Winsor Newton canary yellow pen ink.
This little box has moved with me from Texas to Ohio to Illinois to Georgia and back to Ohio again. I always knew they would somehow be in my art someplace. There was an old ratty hand made quilt that my grandmother gave me that I hauled around in the same box with the canary yellow box. That became a painting about 17 years ago. I guess it is finally the canary yellow box's turn.
I won't tell you what I am working on next, the idea might fly away.
So shopping @Etsy!
