"SITTING PRETTY" ORIGINAL MIXED MEDIA PAINTING OF RED CARDINAL SITTING ON ASPEN BRANCH © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Sitting Pretty"
12" x 36" mixed media on canvas/MDF
framed in grey metal frame
$400; includes shipping in the US



This is the re-work of the original piece titled "Tree Line" as seen below...
When I began working in mixed media this painting just nagged me to death...screaming to be spruced up with my papers and paint...I added a few papers...making sure to include a bit of red to help the unity of the piece when I added this little red cardinal.  I thought about adding more...but folks, more is not always better...so, this little pretty red bird sits enjoying all the attention among these most beloved aspen!

Last night was a fun reception at the Madden Museum of Art in Fiddler's Green near Denver.  I was tickled to find out my painting "Late Summer Aspen" had been added to their post cards...
and...I always take a pic for my mom and hubby...
The Madden Museum is a wonderful place in a beautiful building where Mr. Madden (a real estate tycoon I hear) made room among his famous works by famous artists for 100 artists to display their paintings.  IF you are in the area...hop on down to see some beautiful pieces!

HAPPY CREATING!!

The re-worked piece is still beautiful, Saundra and the cardinal is especially lucky to be sitting here. He knew how to pick a spot that highlighted his own beauty! Congratulations on being on the post card and I must say that I love the size of the piece, and the piece itself is just stunning! I really love your work! 'Course, that may be obvious since I've been reading your blog for at least three years now, I think!
