Painting

After running out and purchasing more stretched canvas panels that one body could possibly need and stacking them neatly in my studio to look at I finally actually painted one.
I was asked to participate in an "Invite Your Partner" swap on Craftster.org by someone I had been in a different swap with on Flick'r. To say I was floored would be to put it mildly. I was very honored that she had asked me to be her partner. She wanted a big eyed bird painting and who was I to deny her that. I love doing the big eyed bird. I think he develops a little more every time I do another incarnation of him. Little did I know the day when I first doodled him how well he would be received. I would think people would be starting to get tired of him by now. I'm glad that they are not.

This canvas is a 12"x12" stretched canvas and I painted the edges black. I used acrylics on him and did some fine tuning with the Prismacolor pencils

His wing is a piece of old foreign language text I received in an ephemera swap. I'm not really sure which particular language it is though. Let me know if you do know. I would love to have that knowledge.

I actually scanned this piece on the scanner and then photoshop stitched the two halves together for one outstanding glareless view but for the life of me cannot get blogger to accept it. Darn.
