Catbird by Mary Beth Brath
I have taken the challenge by Leslie Saeta to complete 30 paintings in 30 days. Each painting will be 6x6" on canvas paper. I picked a theme of birds to keep me focused. The 30 birds chosen as subject matter are all birds that I have spotted over the years. Most are common in my region.
Painting No. 13
The Catbird makes a call that is similar to the sound of a cat. We have a few that nest in our rhododendrons and they will come within 3 feet of me while I sit on the porch. The coloring of this image is off on my computer monitor. The actual painting has a warm buttery background that plays very well off the gray bird. Not sure why I could not get a good digital image.
The paintings are available for purchase at $100 each - unframed. Shipping included. Sales tax of 6% if in the state of Pennsylvania. Contact me at email@example.com.
