This oil painting of a "Baltimore Oriole" was a commission. I started out with the photograph of the "bird" that was taken by my clients father which was sent to me by email. I printed it off and began the painting a while back and had fun painting it. I love the bright orange colors in this "bird" and I wish we had them in Arizona. It measures 8x11x1.50". I continued painting the branches around the edge of the canvas which I think gives it a more interesting look when hanging.
I have been away from blogging for a while, but not from painting. It seems this has been the most busy summer I have ever had work wise. As fall approaches, I will have some upcoming shows and I have been busy in my studio working towards completing as many new paintings as possible. Now....if I can just get them to dry in time.
Thanks for stopping by.
