"Crooked Feather"

"Crooked Feather" 24x48 oil on canvas, 2009, Framed, nfs.

I posted this earlier in the beginning stage. I had tried a technique of doing a charcoal drawing, spraying it with acrylic, then painting over that. Well what I discovered was that the turpentine diluent that I use with my oil paints actually dissolved the acrylic layer and spread the charcoal like paint. But don't be alarmed, It worked to my advantage on the Indian but to my disadvantage on the flowers. The black was almost impossible to cover up and that is why my magnolias are yellow and pink instead of white. BUT...I like it...its different. This little fellow stands in Ocean Springs MS as a monument that I have looked at all my life growing up there. Hope you enjoy it....you can even buy him if you want to. I am currently setting up paypal on my website to make it easier for you to purchase my art. Until then you can reach me through my email if you are interested. Thanks for looking.
