I took this photo a couple of days ago of this little one with his back to me and I found it charming and a little funny, so I just had to paint him for my ETSY shop. I gave him a bit more color, so I guess you could say he has fauvist tendancies, and I like him this way! This isn't my first from the back painting...in fact, I have been painting things from behind for many years...I find it interesting if you can capture a feeling without a face...you decide if it was successful for you or not!
As always, Birdy has black painted sides, and I offer a black backer board that is 5"x5" for framing a little larger so as to let all the sides show. You can see how much backer shows when framed in a 5"x5" frame below.
I have also been working on a small project for my bathroom...of the beachy theme variety. I LOVE when I go visit my most wonderful son in San Diego...I always leave there knowing that all things beach and ocean will always bring a tug of love into my heart because he is there and I miss him...SO, I brought back a sand dollar that I've framed and a starfish sculpture that also had to be framed...FUN DOINS!! Don't forget about taking care of yourself and your home as you work...it brings a good feeling and a happy balance to working as an artist!
