HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY - LUNCH WITH FRIENDS

NEW WORKS FROM THE STUDIO OF ART BY WENDY
LUNCH WITH FRIENDS - 11 X 14 -  Available

As you know I am famous for revisiting a picture I am not happy with and trying to save it.  This was definitely the case with my blackbirds.  I loved my birds and my bird feeder in this drawing but somehow my composition did not work for me. (See my original picture below.)  When I was reluctant to take it to a show, I knew I had to do something.  I took it to a critiquing session and listened to all the comments and then I sat with it for a few months while my ideas percolated, finally I was ready to roll.  I developed some background foliage and added another bird to the group.  The picture seems more balanced and  far more interesting now so I am happy.

I am applying for my Signature Status with the Federation of Canadian Artists and I have decided to use my blackbirds as my opening picture.  The application goes in this week so keep your fingers crossed; jurying happens the March 10th weekend!!

I love your revisions. Even though I loved the first one I can see how your changes have really improved it. Good luck with the Federation, you are very deserving of Signature Status!
