The Littlest Song

This is where I ended up. This was an interesting

painting for me. The darks had to be really strong as

they are not particularly dynamic shapes. I wanted the eye

to bounce around and then have the quieter elements softly

converse… Two conversations going simultaneously. This

composition almost feels musical to me.

I was listening to Jolie Holland singing “The littlest Birds”

which inspired the title. A fabulous song if you have never

heard it before…
