I painted a two-hour Rumble in my kitchen on Wednesday afternoon. I want to paint Chief Poundmaker as an offering to Dylan, for his continued success on a positive and rewarding journey. For now, life seems to be blessed and it is because of some great choices. I first met Dylan at the Gorilla House, while painting my studio chief sketches and so, it came to be that he shared his story.
Needless to say, the painting was not accomplished in two hours and so I took the panel with me to the Rumble, thinking I might complete it then. Nopers. With the whirl of activity and lacking intense focus, I knew that I would be putting a soulful effort in at home, again. It’s still not complete, as I make the effort to achieve a satisfying likeness. This is just important to me. I am writing this blog as more work is happening and while drinking my morning coffee. I’ve decided, however, to get the post about Wednesday night on my blog, with the painting in progress. Otherwise, my readers won’t see the archive of work and enthusiasm that was poured into our latest Rumble.
It seemed to be Rico’s night at the auction!
