On the easel: The Flowering Bull

Last week the acceptance letter came for the Caton Merchant Gallery show at the Candy Factory in September. I have spent the last few afternoons making sure the paintings are ready (i.e. signed, edges painted, cat hairs removed...). "Ovis Nectarus" and "Miracle..." will show.

In the meantime after weeks of torturous looking at hundreds of photos of bulls, I finally found one that clicked and started "The Flowering Bull." It is moving along fast. I know exactly where the painting is going after putting aside a few composition options. I almost feel that at times I have too many ideas about a painting and that makes it difficult to choose one.
