Day 18 - Flight Path

I just happened to have two of these little cradled clapboard panels - perfect for companion crow paintings.   I love how you can see the movement of its wings.  These small paintings are quite difficult to paint - you use a size 1 or 0 brush for the fine details.  Requires a steady had and almost no breathing!

Flight Path

My Day 18  painting for this event is called “Flight Path”.  I really like the contemporary realism presentation when painting on Claybord and leaving the background white.  The subject really stands out as intended. 

This is a 6"x6" acrylic on the always challenging Clayboard cradled panel.   

Available on my website by clicking HERE  for $75.

Got My Eye on You

I had planned on painting this for quite a while.  My hesitation came only from people's reaction - you cannot paint only one crow. Huh?  Everyone will think it is bad luck or something.....  So, remembering back to a previous post "Didn't See Nuthin'" ..  I will post this as a work in progress in a few days. The Poem illustrated below is a nursery rhyme.  Could not resist!

One for sorrow


Two for joy


Three for a girl


Four for a boy, Five for silver, Six for gold,

IMG_2154Seven for a secret never to be told

Eight for a wish, Nine for a kiss,

Ten for a time of joyous bliss.
