This painting is quite a bit larger than the aceo size so it proved to be somewhat challenging because I needed to change brush size and the amount of color that I mixed. I really like using large brushes. Actually I use proportionally large brushes for the aceo size. If the tip of a large brush is is good condition, it is hardly necessary to change brushes for the entire painting. Large washes as well as the finest detail can be handled very well. I learned to use the largest tool for the job when I was assisting a painter/repairman. The lesson has served me well.

I think there is nothing sweeter than a sleeping cat. The sight of their totally relaxed form calms the mind. And, if only for an instant, the quiet is welcome.

Heron teaches to be still and wait for what we need to come to us. This heron was disturbed by Maus yesterday. Wading in the shallows undoubtedly in an excellent fishing place he took to the bare and tangled branches above the beach. The sight was anything but graceful with wings and legs grabbing to stay perched. There he waited where he finally let some loud caws and flew away over the lake.  I have never seen one fly upward to perch. He must have been stalking something important to wait like that.

Fox has great powers of invisibility allowing his presence to blend into the forest. Align with fox when you want to disappear and be left alone. I had a good friend who was very adept at doing this. In a room full of people you simply couldn’t see him. He was either the life of the party or not there.
