daily painting | talking head

Appropriate for today’s newsy events — watching pundits pontificate on news channels is great practice for painting people. I don’t even remember who this was, but his face and generous lips and mouth captured my interest. It’s much more satisfying, however, to watch the swarms of cliff swallows out my window build mud nests under the ledges of the cement silos in my parking lot. Really lovely time of year.
