I painted this more than a year ago as a washed tonal study. It has been raining for 2 days. I took this outside yesterday to take a photo. I caught a drop of water on the board. When it stops raining, I will photo it again.
Sometimes I paint all day and its a dud. Sometimes I wonder why and was it just a bad idea or have I forgotten something. Sometimes paintings paint themselves. Sometimes I don't like them, sometimes I do. I know that it is not so important if I like it or if I don't. The enjoyment for me is in the doing. I do like these little birds.
This is "BigEye" docked in Wanchese Harbour on Mill Creek Landing Road. I liked the way the bow of the big eye was "creased". Thats fair. I hope BigEye and her crew always have fish to catch in the waters of coastal North Carolina.
One time, I was sloppy drunk, and I realized I needed to pick a fight with a small man I was certain I could beat. I started to look around the room. My head started to spin. Then the room started to spin.
Cats can be real jerks, and I'm not into songbird. I put a bell on Shirley to remind her that I don't want no wren right now and I don't touch no thrush. To be a jerk, she keeps bringing them.
She is in defiance of the bell concept.
After a hurricane or even a hard blow ginsoaked boy would say,
"lets go to Art's Place and get (S%&#)faced"
Oil on canvas 20"X16"
Art's Place is open year around on the beachroad in Kitty Hawk.

I put a rain gauge up in my back yard last night. It was overflowing at 7 inches when I checked it at first light and another 4.75 inches this morning. It rained a foot in my backyard. Its dry now and water levels in my canal went down overnight and are back to a high normal.
