Actually I had two pretty good reasons to be painting this random assortment of objects. Firstly I wanted to concentrate my energies this time round on colour and composition. Instead of painting a portrait of one random little object all by its lonesome self, I want to paint a whole bucket load of them jostling and fighting for space or maybe even getting along together sometimes.
The second reason is that it was a friends birthday yesterday and this certain friend has a bit of a dislike for camels (beaten up by a gang of unruly camels as a small child? Who knows...).
You may say that dedicating this painting to say Happy Birthday is a bit mean but he's a lovely guy and will take it good jest (please, please, please take it in good jest).
Anyway, Happy Birthday certain friend (I hope you know who you are but if you don't that's probably a good thing) and to everyone else, welcome to the first of 100 Paintings in 100 Days Squared.
