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.....
