Red Bird---Red Chair

I know that you have seen this one before and I was never satisfied....given what I am learning and acknowledging about myself I went into it one last time.  Now, I LOVE it.  Learning to trust ones instincts is a big step forward.  At least it has been for me.  I decided that using thick paint isn't a curse!!!  I wish that my red chair still existed...but it doesn't.  There is a purple chair at the thrift store that I have my eye on and I just may get it.  It took me many days to get this composition right back when I put it together...that is a key element  to success.  There are times when you want to paint so badly and taking the time to lay out a good workable composition takes so much time!  But, a word to the wise...take all the time that it requires.
Oh, and by the way....it is not a sin to use black.  I make mine from alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue, and cad yellow med.  It takes a bit of mixing to get just the right balance.
