9” x 12” — Oil $845

I love observing and painting birds. This Mourning Dove landed on the deck railing while I was having my morning coffee. As it went through its preening routine with the sunlight shining on it, I thought it looked like a dancer on a stage. I painted this on a smooth panel and used soft brushes to be able to create the softness and beautiful subtle colors of the feathers.
