My computer has a folder of images and a song playlist called "Frog Painting." I keep reaching for that painting and finding others instead. Like reaching into a dresser drawer in the dark, grabbing what you think is the right sweater, carrying it into the other room to look at it in the light, and being surprised at the colors and pattern in your hand. It gets silly the third time. I'm there.
So instead of the leaping frog and yellow bird that are supposed to be in that painting, I got this. At least there are some yellow birds... This is actually watercolor with some acrylic for the opaque areas.
And living with two cats, and being mesmerized by their shapes and movements, I can understand why they keep showing up in my art.
