Mr Moose

I started out with a black canvas for Mr Moose.  Something a little different for me and it was fun.  I found that it was more difficult to bring the color out, of course, so Mr Moose looks better under a light.  I love experimenting with color and can't wait to try the dozens/hundreds of ideas I have going around in my head.  Need more hours in the day!!!  It would, also, help if I weren't so scattered.  I'm one of those.  I head to the table to paint, see the cat, stop to talk to it, hear the dryer go off...go down stairs,  run across GusGus, play with him a bit...and it's time to get to the shop!  Oh well...that's where I usually paint.

You sound like me. My actions and my thoughts take little detours all the time. Oh well, I'm never bored.

I forgot to tell you (See what I mean?) - I like Mr. Moose a lot!

I don't think I've seen a painting on black background yet that I haven't loved. It is one of those things I too want to try one of these days. I love Mr. Moose and all of his 'hearty' glory. That wry expression on his face is wonderful!

I loved it when they came out with the 3" thick canvases....you carry the painting right off the side...and all of a sudden it's 3-D....and another bonus..is that you don't have to get the artwork framed!

thanks for sharing your mr.moose! he's cute....

ciao

He is darling! I think the black background worked out very well. It gives him a very earthy quality.
