Here lies a third study in the idea process for my secret garden series. Unfortunately this idea did not make the cut either. Reason being, why do I want old mailboxes in my secret garden? My secret garden is going to be way cooler than that ;)
I do love the fox though. He will make an appearance in a different composition. I consider the blackbird my spirit animal. I’ve had many special connections in my life with them. In fact, when I have an abnormal encounter with a blackbird I really pay attention to what’s going on in my life and take measure. So the black bird will make an appearance in the future as well.
A reminder, these paintings are little. They are only 8×10 inches. My thought has been that even if these “ideas” don’t make my final cut, I will still complete them. With a big white mat, these little animal pictures are going to be really sweet and enjoyable to look at.
I have already re-sketched a configuration for a new fox garden painting. The new one is more “Mary” flavor which -if I am going to put in all this effort -better be what I would like to see :)
