Birds in Oil

Better to have the birds in oils on canvas than in spilled oil out on the sea and shore! They are much happier this way!

Here's my just-completed painting... still wet, but listed on Etsy this morning. Song in Blue is 12 x 12.

On gallery-wrapped canvas with 1 1/2 inch painted edges...

This photo was taken inside the studio on a gray day, using overhead lighting, similar to what you'd find in most homes. You can see the difference the lighting makes in the colors of the painting.

There are two more 12 x 12 canvases in process in the studio... one has bright, abstract background and will feature a raven or a grackle; the other is a silvery, winter scene with a smaller bird, perhaps a titmouse or a warbler. Stay tuned!
