Interlude... 'Wood Stork'


'Wood Stork At Rest' oil on linen, 8x10 © Marc R. Hanson '10
I'm doing three posts today. Before I get into the 'Myakka Afternoon' rework post, I wanted to post this little painting of a Wood Stork that I did this afternoon. Might be 'Big Bird Part II'?

The cool shadows on stork feathers make a lovely contrast against the yellow grasses. Nice job.

What a delight to receive your newsletter this morning with all your latest works and news for workshops for the year. Congratulations on having your painting accepted into the oil painters of America exhibition. It is a beautiful painting I especially like the light on the roof of the building in the deep snow. I must say my favourite is this beautiful painting of the 'Wood Stork' the soft painterly style reminds me of the French Impressionists. The painting has such atmosphere. I wonder if it would be possible to paint this larger but using the same simple brush work.

I would love to receive your newsletter. I am tempted to sign up for your workshop in July, are there still openings. Do you also work in pastels. One more question, I saw your work on the cover of the Artist Advocate magazine on their website. Would you recommend putting an ad in for an emerging artist? Thanks, nice stork, you kept it simple which is harder than it sounds! Susan
