The new year has opened with great enthusiasm. I have been painting almost everyday and it feels great. I won’t lie – the severe cold has kept a little distance between me and the actual studio in our backyard. But never fear, I purchased a nice tabletop/portable easel that is perfect for indoors when my bones just can’t quite take the chill. I’ve also moved back to painting with oils. It was like seeing a dear old friend. We’ve been having a most magnificent time reminiscing about old times and catching up on current events. I’ve been using some new water mixable paints by a German company by the name of Lukas. They’ve got great color and consistency. Best of all, the water mixable aspects make them a much better choice for those concerned about the environment.
I’m currently working on 2 big wood panels, one of a ram and the other of an elephant. The most current piece is this little gem of a white wolf. It’s a cozy 8×10. I’ve been concentrating on wildlife (animals in general) in the modern world and trekking through the concepts of animal welfare, what it means to be humane and environmental impact. Hope you enjoy!
Glückliches neues Jahr! (Happy New Year!)
Until the next 30 moons…
