More paintings in waiting
Thesee are two paintings that I've been playing around with, or am about to play with. A woman with a hen is the subject of both. The painted one was done on a yellow ochre background, so the colors are much different than most of my work. It was an experiment introducing different background planes. Well the hen is huge - I think it must have been genetically altered. Have you noticed the size of chicken breasts in the grocery store? Almost the size of small turkey breasts. I don't know what they are feeding them, but I can't think it is healthy taking in those genes and hormones into our bodies. Oops, I'm supposed to be talking about painting instead of going off on a rant.... Sorry. But, seriously, think about it.
