Sin Eaters

Oil on canvas. Work in progress. Originally I wanted this to be coldly, starkly white. Dry, bone aching cold white. And yet have a sense of nighttime. I am not happy with the dun beigeness - too muddy. But I also really want a white crow, an old crow. The composition is not there yet. I love the white bird, and when I get all those candy jewel insects packed on that plate, I'll be happier. Originally they were meant to be bones. Too obvious.

I promise, I'm not depressed!
