Another in my bird series. The last two were in egg tempera. This one is in oil, and I think I’ll go back to egg tempera for the next one. The downside, and the upside, are that they take a long time to make. I love this slowing down of process. Almost all my work in the recent past were things that were finished in a week or less. The egg-tempera paintings take much longer. It’s a painstaking matter of making mark after mark, in some ways not unlike the abstract collages I made in my early years as an artist.
