Painting Up A Storm!

Baby Bluebird Begging for Food - (c)Pat Dolan - 12"x12" - acrylic - $200.00

I've got spring fever! It's coming out in my choice of subject matter - notice that I've got lots of spring harbingers, nestlings, and fledglings in this series. One would think I am obsessed with Spring! And it has been delightful to paint this series, to look outside and see as well as hear the Robins greet the dawn and dusk. While I haven't yet seen the baby Bluebirds at our feeder with a parent, I have seen one baby Blue out of the nest while out on our walks.

The Bluebird above is painted from a photo I took last spring on our deck.

Then there are the Robins... I think I have 4 or 5 of them painted by now. Here are three. The first one is acrylic done on an Artist Pro Gesso Panel while the latter two are painted on standard stretched canvas.

Nestling - (c)Pat Dolan - 12" x12" - acrylic on ProPanel Gesso Board - $170.00

Spring Robin - (c)Pat Dolan - 12"w x 9"h - acrylic on stretched canvas - $170.00

Winter Robin - (c)Pat Dolan - 12"w x 9"h - acrylic on stretched canvas - $170.00

All these paintings are more will be available during my Open Studio the weekend of May 6th & 7th, sponsored by the Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania. I'm also making prints of several of my paintings which will also be available on-line as well as during the open house. If interested in any of the paintings shown here or in prints of one of my paintings, leave a comment and I will get in touch with you. Thanks, all!
