As I said in my previous post, my little paintings are popular with my followers. I can see why! In the art world, a trend has been emerging toward personal, intimate, and small-scale paintings. Not to mention, small paintings fit in difficult to design places and are more affordable than larger artwork. I love painting in all different sizes, but I especially enjoy painting on small panels. It allows me to focus in on my subjects and paint alla prima - all in one sitting. So, I plan on focusing my paintbrush on these little guys through out the rest of November and into December.
Today's painting is titled, "The Sentry". I painted a series of little blackbirds a while back and sold most of them... Black birds mean many things to many people. To me they can be pretty little birds that aren't flashy, but make a statement all the same. And some of the species of black birds (crows and ravens for two) are quite intelligent. This guy is a young crow, keeping watch for you... And stripes are back! I enjoy using the stripe motif in my backgrounds as they allow me to use interesting color combinations that I otherwise might not put together.
Remember, all my paintings are 20% off through December 17th, including this one!
