Oil on canvas, 10" x10". I bought some prints from Jessica Swift last week. I love her colors and design sense. They inspired me to try my hand at being more fantastical and I HAD SO MUCH FUN PAINTING THIS imaginary bird. Thanks Jessica!! (Here is birdy's more realistic counterpart.)
My father said that I should post this photo on my blog, I must say there is something quite satisfying about it. Always fun to take the Block Island Ferry, the lower painting is of the road heading from the south-east lighthouse to the bluffs.
oil on canvas, 36"x36", detail. Oh, and also, Stay tuned: daily painting #150 will trigger the next give-a-way. I was planning on celebrating daily painting #200 with a give-a-way but painting has been much slower than I anticipated this month and I can't wait that long!
The rotary dial I used most recently was at my grandmother Dymock's house in Chapel Hill, NC eight years ago. Especially the one in the kitchen sandwiched between her ancient plastic phone book with the phone #s of her mostly dead friends and an enormous jar of dog food for the corgis (though she moved here at 19 she remained a loyal subject of the Queen till the end). Gosh the physical details of her house flood back. She was born in 1904! What's the last rotary phone you used?
Oh dear-not a joke!! By complete happenstance this is also a painting of a creature named Bella, as in the previous post, only its a human girl here. I only just noticed the coincidence when typing it in. My sister's birthday (mother of this Bella) was saturday and this is a belated gift.
