I worked on three paintings this morning - each demanding something very different. The first was this odd small work, which I think of as Cardinal Man. It might be Virgil again. He shows up a lot. This was an awful lot of fun to paint. I can't explain all the shapes - they just are. Well the fish isn't, I guess.
And I worked more on Ursas Major and Minor, which I will continue to orient as I see it, since I haven't seen it right-side-up in nearly a week. This was soothing work, and actually what I started with today. This is about all I'd be up for if I paint more tonight. I'm pretty tired out and this week will be another challenge at work.
Finally, I worked more on Glee 1. This was the hardest work of the day - figures are hard for me, especially if they are largely out of my head. But I'm fairly pleased. The drawing had this figure looking grumpy, and that is not what I wanted. So I altered the expression while painting it. This will be one of the most time consuming paintings I've done since Housecats and Weathervanes, two years ago.
This morning I took photos of these incredible frost patterns on the top of my car. The cold finally drove me inside, or I might have continued to hunt for compositions. I took about a dozen shots.
