A crayon warm-up from the other morning. Most of the time these are fairly loose and not really about anything (though occasionally they do become big paintings,) which is why I don't have a "crayon warm-up" category for this blog. Most of them are junk, and the whole point of the exercise is they don't need to be for sharing. I liked the feel of this one though. It was based on the dream I'd had the night before -- I'd spent majority of the dream sitting in a car holding a small fish in my hand. It was weirdly poignant, in that way dream-time things can be, this fish in my hand. Cool, small but weighty. A humble dinner certainly -- my hand isn't very big and the fish cupped in it comfortably.
