On the Easel: Cedar Waxwing


on the easel: Cedar Waxwing
7" x 5", oil on panel
$250, framed

Artomatic 2010 is approaching and I have decided that I am going to do a group of 5" x 7" oils of birds for the exhibit. It is really quite amazing how much I have learned about color and technique from doing these little paintings. As I get farther along I will ask you to help me come up with a title for my exhibit. I plan to have at least 20 framed oils and a set up like I did in 2009.

Along with that I am working on getting back to four or five unfinished New Mythology paintings hanging about. The setback I have had with my shoulders and neck has created great frustration, but I am so thankful to get back to the easel.

I just love these little guys. They are so beautiful and sit so elegantly! Sounds like a great plan for Artomatic, Tracey!

Cool Tracey. I am finding the same with painting smaller works. Infact someone told me once that I would learn more from doing a painting a day than spending a week on one...Well I agree partly-BUT we know thats not alwasy possible!:o)

What a beautifully elegant little bird. Really lovely!
Can't believe it's already approaching a year since the last Artomatic.
