Making art is my freedom. Didn't sell the #farallones painting last weekend, but this #earedgrebe is going to a new home today. A gift to welcome a baby on the way. I make a lot of art and as all the artists know, it's a full time job getting art to new homes, much less making $ in the process. And I already have a different full time job, so.... It's always a bittersweet feeling to say goodbye to an old friend. I started this piece way back in 2013 after working with @chasingchickadees in the desert. Finally put the finishing touches on it last weekend and now I'm ready for it to find a new home. Gotta make space for new ideas! I hope this grebe inspires #birdlove in the lil one that will be looking at it next.
