As an artist it always feels a little silly to say that I'm "in-between" projects.. because for me, every thing I do is in-between something else! So while this was certainly painted in-between other things I am working it, it is no less of a painting.
This is inspired by the cranes at the Woodland Park Zoo; this individual was going through a long preening ritual that I find so engrossing. I love preening poses and hope to paint them more into my personal work over time.
