I am so so happy to announce that my hummingbird painting for Auguste Clown Gallery is finally complete!
Well, it has been done for a few days now, but I have been waiting ages for those white wisterias to dry 😛 That’s what I get for globbing on the paint I suppose!
This painting was a challenge in a few ways. First off, there is no female figure – which is very unusual for me! Though I love painting birds, this was a real direct focus on a very small very complicated one which needed alot of attention from me on a small scale.
Then there were the flowers…It was the first time I had ever painted flowers like this in the foreground, and each took me several hours to complete. But with some really good reference pictures and good planning ahead of time made sure it came out the way I wanted it to 😀
Now that it is dry and all safe to ship, it’ll be making its way over to Australia where it will be on display 🙂 If you like the painting and are thinking of adopting it – please feel free to contact the gallery owner with all questions!
The price is $270 AUS and will come framed – done by the expert gallery owner himself who has excellent taste so never fear 🙂
Now….as this painting is done and I finally had something to update for December I have been able to make my 2012 Art Summary Meme!! I always get so excited when I get to do this 😛 Each year has been a journey, and this one more than most. I have already started my new years goals and resolutions for art next year – I hope for even more exciting things to come!
Thank you everyone for such a fantastic year – I hope you had a great one as well, and even better – look forward to a creative and inspiring 2013!! Happy New Year!
