Little Bird

This painting is new. Not only is the paint still wet, but it is new to me in the sense of experimenting with new techniques. So new, in fact, that I'm not quite able to articulate yet what the painting, or even the techniques used to create it, mean to me. Over the weekend I had over 125 people in my studio, many of whom offered their observations to me: powerful, mesmerizing, revealing, phasing. My favorite though was ethereal. I like this one because more than any other painting I have done, this one is all about the muse; the girl, who is herself ethereal. She is delicate in a way that is too perfect for this world. And it took a delicate hand to translate this onto canvas.

  1. Great Post, Angela! Are you able to make that second video a clickable link? As it is I have to copy and paste to view it.
    Thanks, Chi
