The Story behind Rhythm in Blues

Updated: Mar 11, 2022

This painting, like all of my paintings, was developed in many layers. But there is one layer that is now completely invisible to the eye. While painting this work, I suddenly saw a roadrunner - right in the middle of this painting! Somebody else may not have seen it, but once I saw it, there was no "unseeing" it. And so, I spent hours finding ways to break it up and completely disassemble it, all the while adding visual interest to the painting. Can you see it? Can you spot the new markings, shapes, and colours I created on the way to completing this painting?

Here's another step in the process of hiding the roadrunner!

And then, finally, the completed version of Rhythym in Blues.
