|New finished paintings for wildlife series waiting to be framed.|
Lest you think all I have been painting for the past two months is playful miniatures, let me assure you I have been busy. I decided to get a head start on the work I will need completed when the South Carolina Wildlife Art Exhibition opens in February. Since Nov 1, I have completed six 9" x 12" oil paintings of marsh birds.
|Three Wildlife Series works in progress.|
I have three more marsh bird scenes in progress.
( For those of you who are wondering... I often paint the background first, leaving the bird itself until last... So the red bird shape will become a white egret... the white bird shape a red-wing black bird (after I complete the background) and the rice gate will have a blue heron added to a post..)
And after I complete the marsh birds, I 'll try painting some mink, river otter, alligators and other SC wetland critters from photos I've collected at Huntington Beach State Park.
