I recently stumbled upon a new direction in my Aspen patina paintings. As I was finishing up a pair, I felt it needed something more; a focal or accent. Thinking about birds in trees and my favorite bird; Ravens, I decided to add a couple to my painting. Happy with the results, I photographed the small area that held the Ravens and posted it on my Facebook page. I really liked this detailed photo (and so did about 50 other people). so I created a new piece that was small, with Ravens, much like the photo detail, and posted a photo of it. It sold immediately, giving me more opportunity to work in this Aspen/ Raven series. Each one brings new ideas and opportunities for more in the series.
The point is... keeping going with one idea and letting that flow into adjacent ideas and see how far you can go!
