30 Paintings in 30 Days- Day 10
"Martini , please!" Acrylic $95
This is a funny painting. I think this bird wanted a martini so bad that he had a little accident! I laugh when I see it. The shadow ended up looking more like a puddle, so I thought, I'll just make it abstract by putting stripes through it. Well, that made the shine show even more! So I thought, "it is what it is!" Secondly, I'm not going to tell you what kind of bird this is, cuz I'm not sure what it looks like! I collaged the top part with torn napkins, and then painted on top of them, using black acrylic. This painting is almost all acrylic, in fact, beside the collage. I had to put 2 olives in the martini, because I really like them!
