Yesterday was an exercise in imagination. Today I’ve gone back to the same reference and painted what was really there. I showed Melissa, who took the picture, my painting, and her comment back was that she’d seen something kind of medieval when she took it. So it was fascinating to me that we’d each thought of something totally different.
I like the moth as itself, but its pose, strangely suspended as it is, gets the mind to wandering, creating creatures of its own.
