I love how it turned out. I hadn't painted anything in quite a while, and this exercise got me thinking of painting yet again, and I was now obsessed with painting birds to boot. Below is the painting I just finished for my very own self. I love, love, love it.
Alas, I first need to buy paint, a lot of paint, and it is just not in my budget right now. So, I am once again back to working on my beloved novel. I originally split the book into three files for my ease. The third part is what I need to work on, and I am really dreading the task, which also probably contributed to my painting jag. It needs a lot of tender loving care. The story moves way too fast. I need to let it breathe and wander.
