Wet Paint + Bug

I went out painting last night, and posted a quick snapshot of the painting over on my facebook page.
 I brought the painting home tucked away in my easel, and left it there overnight. When I took it out today, I noticed some, shall we say, embellishments? And a dried up... slug?

Poor Mr. Slug!
Scraggly Tree Plein Air, 10 x 8" oil on linen.

The slug has been removed, but the evidence of his winding journey across the oil painting remains. It kind of works out with the branch-y stuff happening in that area, I think. Call it a collaboration?



  1. Ha! Wow, I bet you could start a type of painting where you have slugs/snails slither around in paint and leave a unique design!
