"TOWEE IN THE PINK" ($100.)
New bird... oil and collage. Size 8x8 on a gessoed cradled board. The striped backgound is an old piece of wallpaper I found in my collage material. The color of the stripes are slightly more pink, but I couldn't get the camera to get the color right. Another reason I am not too happy with my fairly new Canon camera..UGH! I even spoke to the Canon customer service person, who I felt knew less than I did about the color issue.
Not the greatest photo of this little Chickadee I painted. Another great bird that comes to the feeder hanging outside my studio window. The bottom of the oil painting is done in collage. It's of a group of Zinnias that I took a photo of and manipulated in a photo digital program. I have been trying to incorporate more of my photos in the collages I do, rather then just using parts of magazine pages. It's done on an 8"x8" cradled board.
I did a few changes on this. I felt I needed to work on the hanging lights and try and give them more of a glow...not easy to do and I don't feel I was totally successful. I entered this is the North Clackamas Guilds annual art show and this painting took "BEST of MIXED MEDIA". I was a lucky lady that night, see my post on the bluebird painting.
