Rainy days.

I've been painting on these rainy days.  On Tuesday I finished a memento mori after the Swedish artist Owe Zerge, whose 'Canticle of the Sun' is shown above.  I liked it so much I did my own version - not nearly as fine as Zerge's work.  I'll post it after I photograph it - I need good natural light to shoot in.  My version was part of my daily painting regime and I changed it up a bit - blue jeans instead of the Franciscan habit.  The  subject matter may account for my dark humor of late as well.

Today I'll try and do an archbishop in a cappa magna for my daily paint exercise.

After that I may buckle down and attempt a more serious painting, an icon perhaps.
