Shore Birds

A few weeks ago I grabbed this 4x6 inch canvas and promptly made a mess. Sometimes work is better off just wiped out. After wiping the image off, the canvas sat on the shelf for a few weeks and dried. It was the color of a sunset, but there was no painting. At least until today. The muse visited again and these two little shore birds found a home on the golden canvas. It is satisfying when I can make something beautiful out of a dried up mess. This painting SOLD at the Small Impressions Gallery , but there are other paintings of birds and animals also available here.

Great job! The bird silhouettes look so realistic next to that beautiful golden sunset color.

Thanks for visiting. I'm glad to hear they turned out well.
