Warm Theory


warm, originally uploaded by artstreamstudios.

In theory, this painting would have been easier to achieve in a smaller scale. It measures 3 x 4 feet and I did this back in 2005 in oil and oil bar.
It was fun to paint.
Guess what I saw that inspired me- in Vienna prior to painting this?
Guess in the comments below and the winning answers will be put into a hat at the end of this week (February 22nd) and I will draw a winner. The winner gets one of my new larger scale bird paintings, painted just for them.
Have fun!

I was going to guess Klimt ... but it seems I might be wrong. :)

Woah, girl. I LOVE this painting. LOVE it. Amazing. hello ... bueller??

It's like biting into a luscious ripe piece of an orange on a cold dreary day. Like fireworks in your brain ... a Coney Island of the mind ... (ok I'll stop now).

This isn't going to even be close, but Chuck Close?

Wow! I wish I knew more about Vienna and art, but I don't. I do know I'm jealous of the winner who will get one of your lovely birds! :)
