Golf Painting "Birdie" (One Under Par)

(One Under Par)

One of my new oil paintings "Birdie" began with the idea for some "golf paintings."  I had a pair of men's "golf" shoes that belonged to my late father, so I decided it would be fun to paint one of them in a fun still life.  I took a lot of photographs of my idea first.  I also spent a lot of time trying to capture some good photos of a "hummingbird" that frequently sits in my patio tree.

Here is a photo of my oil painting when in progress

This new "oil painting"  "Birdie" will be available at the next "Celebration of Fine Art" show which opens in January.  I will also have a limited edition of giclee prints on canvas of this new painting for sale.  The original oil is being framed now, and it measures 9 x 12".  It will make a great gift for the "golfer"/"bird lover" in your life.
