People's Choice Winner

Outstanding in His Field, acrylic, 24 x 48
Elizabeth W. Seaver

Very fun that this piece won first place on Second Saturday at The Workhouse in our February Workhouse Associate Artists exhibit. He looks inscrutable--in a farmer in the dell sort of way.
 
One lady said he was really impressive, but she wasn't sure she'd want him looking at her from the wall of her living room. I guess the bedroom's out, too.
She made me laugh! I don't really think of ostriches as the warm and fuzzy type, so that's okay.

Thank you, Laurie. I like it that you can see beyond his facade, through to the important things.

Hi, Cathy. Thank you. I'm afraid he thinks so, too!

Thanks, Anna!

Yes, Cath, I do not always have such a "bird" bird. But I had to paint this guy. I just wish he'd tell me his name. Any ideas?

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Now, that's what I'm talking about. Polly, you see the man inside the bird, don't you? I'll see if I can find his cell for you!
