Work In Progress

I seem to be allergic to detail–I refuse to think I’m incompetent–when I hold a paintbrush. Give me a digital stylus or pen and ink and I happily enter the dexterous realm of illustration. But unless the canvas is large enough for rendering detail with a big fat brush my fingers fumble unforgivably. So as much as I’d love this image to be finished, it’s still a WIP. Sigh.

Okay, now that prefacing is out of the way, the reason I started this was for a #chagallchallenge on Google +. The long of it you can read here, the short of it is:

The Chagall Challenge is: “Inspired by Marc Chagall” can be interpreted in any way you wish, from a study (or copy) of an individual painting to a general stylistic association to a loose thematic link.

Eggs & Onions is based on #5 in Lena’s (@LenaLevin_paint) description: “Let it float”: let things that usually remain earth-bound (like cows or goats, for example) fly in your skies.

So, if and when I ever finish it, you can be sure the clouds will part and a morning banquet will rain down upon thee.

Only then will I update the image.

In the meantime, keep your eyes skyward!
