I have no idea where this is, or where it came from. I can't even clearly recall how it started (well, I do remember that the cat came forward first). I don't know how the animals became buildings. I don't have any idea why elephants are wandering this city. I do know it first surfaced two months agao and has been on the board while two others were completed around it, jumping line.
And I do know I like this one very much. It's what I wanted. That only happens this well once in a while. Maybe I have to get this much out of the way, where I can't chronicle the path, where I'm not paying attention to the steps, in order to reach this kind of place.
I don't have a title for this one, either, and that's also unusual, since titles seem to suggest themselves easily for most of my paintings.
19x19 - watercolor on Arches hot press. I used to go through a lot of Burnt Sienna as a teenager - I loved using it all over this painting.
Nothing drawn on any board at the moment - it may be a while before I have another one to show, or even before I'm ready to pick up a brush. Pencil for a bit, exploring the weird white world of the blank page and the things that emerge from that bright Arches fog.
