Crow at Sunset

Crow at Sunset 10″ x 10″

My plan was to paint a peaceful sunset scene, but as I worked I realized it was becoming quite ominous. Something about the red sky and barbed wire, I guess. I considered calling it Crow Post-Apocalypse but thought maybe that was going too far.

Here is yet another familiar sight in Mayerthorpe. As I look back, I am surprised at how many paintings I’ve done of my home town – from the outskirts to side streets, and now all the way down Main.

Nobody wants to talk about the holiday season right now, but if anyone is thinking of giving a pet portrait for Christmas, this is a great time to get started!

Re-do

I was never happy with this painting so I decided to rework the background. The main focus should be the bird (which I like), but the background was much too busy for that to happen. I removed many of the blossoms, toned down the green and generally simplified the whole thing. I’m not sure it is a total success, but I do like the new version better.
