Dead Fly on the Manila Folder
acrylic on canvas 46"x 48"
As I post this, this is still a work in progress. In other words, I'm not sure if I'm done with it yet. It's been tacked to the laundry room wall for a while and in between I've done other Dead Flies. I keep looking at it thinking it needs something but haven't gotten up the nerve to add more paint to it yet. Meanwhile every time I walk in the laundry room there it is glaring at me. Art can be very stressful at times. When I laid this one out I wanted to do an extra large painting because I think the big show I will one day have of all these one hundred dead flies, needs a few extra large pieces for balance and design. Most of the works are small because we don't have much storage space in the house. Believe me when I say it - the dead flies are starting to accumulate! And anyways, Greg, my husband, said when I started this project - "Well, I hope we don't end up with a hundred paintings stacked in the attic!" "Oh, no," I said. "I intend to sell them. But maybe I better work small just in case." Well, anyways, here's a big one, not stretched yet, so it can still be rolled up to save space.
