This is the final version of Surprise! I had the idea to add stitching when someone said to me that the creature looked like a patchwork quilt. I thought it enhanced the humor of the painting. I may have made it just that much more bizarre! I also brightened up the nest area of the painting, hoping that it would become a little more evident.
I will be away for a week at a workshop taught by Gerald Brommer on watercolor and collage. I am really looking forward to it. I will not be taking my computer, so that I might narrow my focus for the time I'm away. I'll see you in a while with photos and news from Boone, NC. Be well everyone!
