'Cause Every Cardinal's Crazy 'Bout a Sharp Dressed Penguin
"'Cause Every Cardinal's Crazy 'Bout a Sharp Dressed Penguin"
Prior to the opening of the Birds, Birch & Bicycles show at Siiviis Gallery in Duluth, I met with fellow painter Adam Swanson to work on a top secret project. The gallery suggested we try swapping subjects for a painting, so Adam worked on a cardinal painting, and I painted a penguin. I couldn't resist having a little fun and whimsy with this piece, and so a cardinal made an appearance on the canvas. There's lots of blue and gold which you know are my favorite colors .. and an abstract reflection in the water at the bottom of the piece adds some mystery, along with the moon sparkling in the sky. All in all it was fun to talk about each other's approach to art and the ups and downs of life as a full time painter. It's been a great experience having a show with Adam .. filling the gallery walls with color. This painting is titled 'Cause Every Cardinal's Crazy 'Bout a Sharp Dressed Penguin and is 24"w x 36"h. Please contact the sharp dressed staff at Siiviis for more information on this piece and many others from the show.
