New Painting: Electric Crows (Fairfield Avenue Sunset)
I can't decide on the name for this new painting:
a) Fairfield Avenue Sunset
b) Electric Crows
c) I'm leaning toward combining those: Electric Crows (Fairfield Avenue Sunset)
d) Or vice versa: Fairfield Avenue Sunset (Electric Crows)
Post a comment and let me know which name you like.
I painted this piece fairly quickly over the course of two painting sessions and I purposely tried to keep it loose. I think it's finished but i may add a little more color to the birds. I'll decide when I'm back in the studio with some fresh eyes.
It's also sort of an experiment with some new imagery that I've been working on in my sketchbook. The support is made from wood topped with a thin layer of a canvas-like material. I've been making some paintings on wood this year and like how the paint feels on it. There's a smoothness to the way the paint moves on the surface. I'm definitely going to pick up some more of these wood panels and continue experimenting.
