This painting has been out on the road for at least a year, and I’m happy to have it back. The co-op gallery I’m a member of has a wonderful policy of placing paintings in businesses and offices all over Kenosha and even the Capitol Building in Madison. They rotate through the different locations, and eventually they are returned to the artist. This one was recently hanging in my favorite coffeeshop overlooking the harbor in Kenosha. It is a beautiful spot to sip a cup of coffee. It was nice to see my painting there, but then it began to bug me. Too loud! Too…something. So when I was able to bring it home I got out the surgical paint brushes and got to work, softening the background foliage with a wash of blue, and modifying the bird a little bit. I like it a whole lot better.
