moss watercolor green purple
"Mossy Fellow"

A major re-entry into the realm of color/brushwork after a humongous pen-and-ink journey. I had been experimenting in those realms for months, but then one day I took a hike on a trail which wound its way through a slate-y gulch amidst junipers and incongruous habitat. I returned to my apartment and immediately painted the purple background and the brownish edge. The creature portrayed has a gaze which suggests proto-consciousness, like one sees in primates or in a feline/canine confidant.
