oriole 16 x 16" framed; oil on panel
I just dropped the oriole off at the South Shore Art Center today for the faculty show that begins on May 21st and runs through July 11th. I am hoping that having the work exhibited will drum up interest in the two courses I am offering this summer at the Center - Introduction to Acrylic Painting and Tonal Drawing.
The painting was completed this winter when I was working on one sitting bird studies. I have framed it with a box-style frame I built myself - included in the photograph. I've been doing a lot of framing lately for the upcoming exhibitions at Bristol Community College and Lynn Arts. I think they're turning out quite well.
