    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    I love this look, June. It has a controlled, saturated feel, complete with bleeding color marks. It's a super way to integrate the image throughout.

    It reminds me of a simple sketch technique taken to a much deeper level. I used to sketch in diners with all kinds of materials, from pencils up to gouache. Sometimes I would take a sable brush and strategically wet a small section of the paper to strategically soften a line with a bit of bleed. I loved the fluidity of that then and now here in your painting but with your painting you've taken it to a more painterly level.

    Since you mentioned you did this in lieu of sleep, I can't help but associate it with a dreamlike quality. Like you had one foot in both states of consciousness -- awake enough to move tools, but asleep enough to see this way. It's like this painting is withdrawing into a dream.

    Anyway, there are a ton of great things happening paint-wise in this one. You should be really pleased. Now back to bed with you and catch up on your sleep. You've earned it.

    Thanks Mark and DA. Periodically I go thru this sleeping issue. Instead of tossing and turning maybe I should get on the computer. Suggestions have been to get up and do something boring like ironing but painting appeals to me more.
