Free Spirit - Inspirational Oil Painting

"Free Spirit"
30"x48"
Oil on Canvas
SOLD


I love skies paintings. After I started adding birds to the skies, I love them even more.
This painting in particular has a lot of significance to me; I liked it so much that used it on my business cards and artist statement. Something about the many layers of meaning of a white dove flying with spread wings just captures me completely.

I had it hanging at the opening reception at the High Road Gallery and Studios on Sunday, and I got a lot of great feedback about this painting in particular.
To add to the happiness, I sold it!
Free Spirit is going to a nice condo in Florida, home of a wonderful gentleman that I had the pleasure to meet last week.

Now I am even more inspired to paint skies and birds!

Feeling thankful.

Heading South - Oil Painting of Sunset with Bird Flock Flying at the Horizon

"Heading South"
18"x24"
oil on canvas, framed
$650


Several months ago my friend Rene Nitsche posted a beautiful sunset photo on facebook and I was immediately inspired to paint it. It took me a while, but here is the finished piece, with small changes to the shape of the clouds and a flock of birds added.

I love the warmth and the sense of serenity that comes out of this scene. : )


Blessings,
Robie
