Twigs 24 x 24 Oil on Canvas

I am getting ready for the Small Works Shows at both galleries.  This is a new size for me and it is a gallery wrapped canvas so no frame.  I think it gives it a more contemporary feeling.  There are spa colors in the background along with greys.  This nest is a mockingbird nest and I found in the holly bush at my mothers house.  Their nests remind you of playing pick up sticks.  The nest is so loosely made with twigs in every direction and somehow the thing stays together.  It probably helps that they build their nests in the holly bushes, which are so hard to get into that the birds must feel safe.  This painting will be available at Anne Irwin Fine Art in Atlanta, Georgia.  I will drop it off in a week or so and the show starts November 14th.  Stop by if you are in the area.

Palmetto State Park 24 x 30 Oil on Linen

This painting was involved in last months show and I am finally getting around to posting the photo.  Last year I painted at this park in South Carolina.  It was nice once we finally found where we were to meet.  It's a nice state park in Mount Pleasant.  Check it out if you are in the area.
