Misty Morn - Acrylic Painting for New Show

"Misty Morn"
Acrylic on canvas
24" x 48"

Here's one of two offerings for the new "Shades of Gray" show at ArtHouse Gallery.   For "Misty Morn" I painted a red gesso undercoat then added texture before laying down the paint.  I tried to make a rather gloomy scene into a less threatening one by adding a bird to it.  If you've ever watched the show Portlandia, check out the scene where they make everything better by adding a bird to it.  It's hysterical!

  1. This is a really lovely piece; I like the grey gloominess of it. Congratulations on the show!
