Art: ACEO:  Blue Blaze by Artist Patience

My partner for this year's EBSQ  'Ripped Off' show challenge was the wonderful nature artist, Amanda Makepeace.  It wasn't easy choosing among her many lovely portfolio pieces, but finally I settled upon her watercolor painting, 'Resplendent Blue'..... 

As a bird lover, having my own little pet cockatiel for over half my life now, I was attracted to the avian subject matter, in addition to the striking color.  I also admired Amanda's simple, understated, and elegant composition, as anyone familiar with my artistic style knows I myself tend toward detail (and often lots of it).  Thus I thought it a good personal exercise to attempt her more subtle approach with a simple, unadorned background.  Unlike Amanda's bluebird, painted with watercolors in mid-flight with outstretched wings, mine is painted in acrylics looking over its shoulder in a relaxed, perched position -- the same posture that regularly greets me within my own pet cockatiel, every single day.....
