Here is what I have been working on.  I work on multiple pieces at the same time, but I think this one is pretty much finished.  Below is a deatil.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, this is a continuation of a painting detour I took a couple of years ago.  Here are a couple of those older paintings:

Hmmm.  Its instructive (to me) to see the new painting juxtaposed so closely to the older two.  I have to think about that.  I hadn’t realized how much more naturalistic the newer one is.  Hmm.

In part the inspiration for this work comes from the little paintings in the 1550 Book of Miracles that I wrote about in my most recent post.
