Bird Series - "Hummin Along"
This new oil painting is on gallery wrapped canvas. (24"x6"x2") The border of my painting was created with various layers of texture to create the embossed design. I then carefully apply my gold leaf over a bright red background. The leaf is very fragile and will show cracks and breaks naturally, so I like to have that little tiny bit of red showing through. I then apply several layers of paint over the gold leaf to create an old world look. Once the border was complete, I painted my hummingbird in flight in oil. I call it "Hummin Along."
It is now available at "The Signature Gallery Santa Fe"
