Day 26, “Bird Watcher” 6×6, oil on canvas, framed

$225.00

Details:

Bird Watcher”  is an original oil painting on a 6×6 inch canvas that is 1.5 inch deep. I have painted the sides, and the painting comes ready to hang in a wood floater frame with a gold finish. I ship every painting out of Pass Christian, MS. Please note: This painting is day 26 of my 2024 31 in 31 yearly practice. It will be available to ship out or for pick up on February 26th, 2024, after the run of the 31 in 31 gallery show. 

Inspiration:

I saw a post on instagram recently that I shared. “One day you’re young and carefree; the next you’re like, “Is that a tufted titmouse at my bird feeder?!” 

I don’t think I much noticed birds when I was younger and could probably name as many as I could count on one hand. I can’t pinpoint when that changed precisely. Even still, when people come to the gallery and of my Great Blue Herons say something like “Oh! Look at the Pelican” I die a little inside.

This painting started as a tufted titmouse, a bird people often mistake for a Blue Jay in my paintings, which admittedly has more to do with how I paint them than any deficiency on the viewer’s part. 

Funny then, that I actually painted over the Tufted Titmouse and replaced it with a jay in today’s painting. The title of this painting does not refer to the human viewer, but to the bird– a bird doing the watching, eyeing you, making sure you don’t mistype her. And you wouldn’t. Everyone gets the Blue Jays right.
