I’m now finished with these two pieces. I worked on the foreground branches on the ringtail and made a few changes on the cactus wrens. I’m pretty happy with the result, but I might still come back later and try to make the ringtail’s tail look more rounded. When I frame it, it will be a triptych with my “Tuscon Scene” necklace in the center mounted on a piece of silk that is the same size as each of these two paintings. I’ll title the finished piece “Lucy and her Birds.”
If nothing else, it’s unusual!
