It is too long ago . . .

"I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun." Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice.

Leaning into experimenting on this next painting. Starting with a glazing on the foundation first and then building layers on top of it. Terry says I killed this brush because (oops) I forgot to clean it. Brush shopping I shall go.  I have had this 'hankering' and image floating in my head of wolves... seems to be something I am drawn to lately.  This image is with earthtones... where truly the wolf is part of its environment.  

Luke 6:48  "He is like a man building a house, who dug deep  and laid a foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built."
