Chickadee, 8 x 10," oil $390
I seemed to have gone into hibernation this winter. I've spent lots of time studying and experimenting, but with the advent of Spring, I'm excited to take on some new subjects, colors and styles. One of my study activities was taking a 3 day workshop with Lani Vlaanderen on birds. I've enjoyed painting birds before, but really benefited from Lani's instruction on bird anatomy and colors. I highly recommend taking any course from Lani as she's a terrific artist, teacher and person. I painted "Chickadee" above in her class, and am still working on on a barn owl that I began there.
You can see "Chickadee" (above) at Colorado Expressions here in Colorado Springs. They began representing my work in January, and with their downtown location and stable of excellent artists, I'm very excited to work with them. Stop in to see the big, beautiful gallery. If you can't make it during the week, you can also see them during the Downtown's 1st Friday Art Walks. If you happen to be flying out of Colorado Springs in the near future, you can also see my work in the exhibit that Colorado Expressions has installed there.
And speaking of Art Walk, this Friday, April 5th, Old Colorado City's 2013 season begins. I'll be in my studio from 5 to 8 pm and am looking forward to seeing you after all these months!
