crawfish 2

 Crawfish painting 2, 6×6, oil on gessoboard, $75 SOLD

Am I really one third of the way through my thirty in thirty? Ten paintings down, twenty to go.  Honestly, it’s been far easier than I thought it would be. And I’m happy.  Really happy.  Not sure how else to say it.  I go to bed at night with brushstrokes dancing in my head and when noon the next day (naptime!!) finally comes around, I run to my brushes in eager anticipation.  Too much?  I’m not usually so maudlin.  But really.  Ah.  Feel like I’m living the dream.

I started this painting about ten minutes into yesterday’s.  I just felt like I needed to do two at the same time.  They’re similar, but this one has some shorter, quicker brushstrokes.

Confession:  I’m not crazy about eating crawfish.  I feel like a heretic given I was born, raised, and currently reside in southern Louisiana.  I felt I needed to get it out there, purge myself of my guilt by confession.  I do LOVE to paint them.  Invite me to a crawfish boil before the end of the season and you just might earn yourself a painting.
