This painting as is just wasn't enough for me. So the first step I took was to glaze yellow ochre over the entire piece. Always a nerve wracking act, to change an entire piece. After you begin with a brave brush you just have to go for it. So when I woke up today the whole piece was glazed. Next I began to add more life.
Placing birds, branches and leaves, then a another bird and a butterfly...continuing till you see the work in the top piece. I've been working in the studio about 9 hours and have to stop to go to openings tonight. When I return I will study the work, and study it again in the morning.
