"House Finch on Teapot"
Yesterday's challenge was the letter "H" in the "Alphabet Mini's Challenge." I photographed this little "finch" in my backyard and then painted it on one of my mini "tea pots". This challenge has been fun, but also a bit more work than I anticipated. A group of artists are each painting or sculpting one per day this month, working our way through the alphabet. Since I focus on "birds in my art" I am choosing a different "bird" each day. I decided it would be a great challenge to help me paint a little bit faster as well as to get some mini oil paintings ready for my next show.
The "House Finch on the Tea Pot" will receive a new title once I come up with a good one. It is painted on gallery wrapped canvas and measures 10x6x1.5"
Since I didn't get around to posting my "G" painting the previous day, here it is:
"G" is for "Goldfinch"
