Earthbound

Oil on Canvas12 x 10. Thought I might try something a little different. I choose the iron bird as a subject matter partly because I like it, (makes a great door stop) but also because of it's symbolic value (we long to soar, but like the iron bird, are earthbound). Tricky doing the book titles- tried out a new "oil pen", helped a bit. CCs welcome

Re: Earthbound

This is an outstanding painting! The books are rendered incredibly well, and your control of edges is astonishing!

Now, I gotta' paint some books! You have inspired me!

Re: Earthbound

Charming. Books are well rendered. What is an oil pen?
