|One in Every Crowd oil/canvas 8 x 24 x .75|
A few weeks ago, the program at my local art club was about breaking the rules. I was unable to attend that evening. Sometimes, in breaking the rules, we are more able to completely say what it is that is felt. "One in Every Crowd" is a case in point. A painting about chicks, sweet chicks. And also a painting about following the crowd, or not. I chose to paint my independent chick a different color and to put him facing a different direction than the others. These changes made the painting more interesting to me, and also made the painting more interesting and challenging to paint.
