"Enjoying the View"

Oil on Linen Canvas

I painted this scene from a photoshoot with this magpie in November of last year. He posed for me for the longest a bird has ever stayed in one place for me, and I've used him (or her) in different positions in several other paintings. The light was coming from behind him and he had a "glow," which didn't show up in the photos I took, but that I tried to capture as the main idea for the painting.

I'm very honored that this painting won two awards in the Women Artists of the West 49th Annual Juried Exhibit at Mary Williams Fine Arts, Boulder, CO, through October 12th.
