duck duck goose the beginning

I decided it was time for a bit of light hearted humor after the long process of the bodhi tree.

I like using unexpected color pallets when doing these type of paintings to try to move people beyond the automatic reaction of "look there is a  ......." and hopefully give the viewer the chance to connect with the piece in a more intimate and emotional way. the painting is going through what i call the ugly phases right now and I always have to convince myself to work through the ugly to find the beauty waiting to be released (kind of like life sometimes), but I find that if I stick without I find the beauty.
