Waiting for it to get light enough to go into my studio (which has natural light only) I resized some progress photos of a sheep painting I’m working on and put them together in this animated sequence . The in-house art critic says it’s got a “Van Gogh Moon”; my thought is “Van Gogh-twisted tartan sky”. Quite where it will end up I don’t know yet, but I suspect not too far off where it is at the moment. First thing I’ll do is re-establish the faces, then decide where or what or if.
Fresh off my easel is the “Passing Places” painting below, which is rather more serene .
And, no, there’s no intended symbolism between the two paintings about the emotional turmoil large family gatherings that tend to occur in this part of the year can bring.
