Big Sky Birds
May 10 - This is a pair of paintings that will use a similar background. One of the paintings will be a gift for an unsuspecting youngster. The other painting will go into the private collection of MPH.com. Check here for regular progress updates.
August 11 - Only the third progress pic; I have been busy with dog portraits. The big cloud on the right is finished.
October 20 - the clouds are finished and the birds are roughed in. That is a Harris hawk on the left, and a raven on the right.
March 29 - Been working on other stuff. But now the raven is roughed in and his perch is almost finished.
May 8 - the Raven is finished and has been handed off. It is a college graduation present for Mr. Daniel Duffy. He is about to earn an engineering degree from the University of Texas - Austin. Daniel is an Arizona native, just like the raven, sky, clouds, and cactus in the painting, The Arizona upbringing gives him a solid perch. The blue sky is the limit. And the raven will help him navigate the light and dark clouds that keep adult life interesting and rewarding. Best wishes.
