This is in my ongoing bird series. It is a Finch found in Australia. I am playing with color in this painting, and wanted to aim for a mood and balance between the bright color in the Finch with a more calming background.
The painting is oil on Arches paper for oils. Measures 9x12 inches and is signed on the back.
I am a painter. I have loved painting all my life. I studied Art and Art History at UC Berkeley, and have been painting professionally ever since. I have shown in galleries and museums all over California, and have sold hundreds of paintings all over the world, from New York, to Finland and Qatar. I am inspired by nature, color and emotion. Hopefully you will get a sense of calm, happiness, or wonder from what I paint. I'm not out to make political statements with my work, but to express joy and gratitude of life through the medium of oil paints. Claire Whitehead
