Macaws and Mangoes
Macaws and Mangoes
Acrylic on Panel

A blizzard raged outside as I painted an arched gate into Eden guarded by macaws. Later it snowed again as I added the mangoes and the beaked gargoyle at the top of the column, all as reminders of sunny weather, though we'll have to warm up significantly before we grow mangoes in Vermont.

The completely misguided perspectives, the inappropriate sizes, and the sky scribbling all interest me.
