Week two. December 2014.

LOOK:


QUESTION:
How can I simplify the visual clutter down to a statement that says everything about what I see but nothing more?

FIELD NOTES:
The air around me was busy as I painted: a kettle of buzzards circled slowly high overhead, a flock of pigeons swooped in and out of the barn, a crow chased a hawk, two fighter jets streaked right to left between the field and mountain, 5 ducks glided by low to land on the farm pond, and innumerable contrails winked in and out of existence.
