Big bird painting... New version!



I'm still working on the painting. I think that despite the major psychological battle with FLAX, I'll be OK... don't you???

It is so nice that someone finally does a rendering of big bird in his natural habitat. I'll be looking for this in the next Audubon book!

Marc R. Hanson said...

Thanks everyone!!!

I just saw my therapist and although she liked Big Bird, she told me that my background needed work!!!

I'm so not a narcissist that I thought she meant the background on the painting??? ;-} Dang, I was looking for a good critique...

Marc R. Hanson said...

Thanks Eugene... a 'Finalist' and a 'Fav 15%'... I'll take that. :)

Just watch, this will be the one that sells! With a little luck, this could become your "blue dog".

Noooooooo!

Don't know if the translation would work so well
there for I'll give them in both languages:

Ik kauw op zangzaad
in mijn hoofd een volière
ik hoor ze vliegen

I'm chewing on birdseed
in my head an aviary
I hear them flying

An Haiku from an old friend of mine,

Marc, I have never been as proud of your work and your accomplishments as much as I am right now with this new piece! The colors, oh boy, what can I say, They SING like the rainbow! The reflections in the water, just like a brand new box of crayolas! The statue of the BIG BIRD, much like a Michelangelo! You are a true Master of the big birds! I'm proud to know you! Paint on Painter! -Kami ;)
