Hello Fellow Artists:
I am quite happy this week to have put aside my agonizing over what photos to put in my portfolio for the CCA review in May and found myself working on my painting again.
My thanks this week to Stacey Huston and her EXCELLENT blog A"focus" in the wild. I was inspired by one of the images on Stacey's site and she was kind enough to allow me to take a stab at painting it. The photo she took was of a lone Mountain Blue Bird on a branch on a frigid morning.
Here is my first attempt at it in my sketch book. It is not quite as good as Stacey's photo, but it has a charming quality of its own. I will paint another one this week and see f I can get it just right. If you want to see the original photo you'll just have to wander over to A "focus" in the wild.
Keep on Making Art!
