MOVIN ON DOWN

Mt. Evans Layer painting process

Sometimes moving down is a good thing...as in the case of my latest 48" x 18" layer painting with Mt. Evans as the star...I'm moving down and it's feeling good so far!  There is a little of everything in this...stamping (click to enlarge to see the sky and a bit here and there), papers, acrylic paint...so FAR!...who knows what will end up in this piece by the bottom!  I'd say I've worked my way down about 1/3...still will pick and play up higher as I see what I want to add, but so far it is laying in nicely.  I'm beginning a rock field as you can see...and I'm going to try to work in a few alpine sunflowers and of course more aspen as I go down...FUN DOINS!

I feel like my progress is slow for me...but I admit I'm weighed down just a little with concern for my mom and dad as they are going through this very difficult time...but, I'm so PROUD at the attitude...God is in charge and He knows what is best...so there is peace in this!  So, I find when things get a little heavy in my mind I grab my stuff and go outside or down to town for a little change of scenery...But, I know I will finish this one soon as I have several big uns to do in a short period of time!!  It's all good in the grand scheme of things...

I'm going to post this VERY blurry pic of a pretty bird that I tried like crazy to photograph because I'm not sure what it is...The colors were MUCH brighter than the photo shows, so I don't think it is a Robin...but I'm not sure...You bird lovers out there might be able to tell me what it is...and I think I have enough information to paint this little one someday...so I'm hanging on to the photo...My camera kept focusing on the trees behind...I guess I have it trained to my favorite subject matter!! HA
Any ideas??  It's sooo cute!!

HAPPY CREATING!

I believe it may be a female blue bird.
