YUPO AND FLUID ACRYLICS

These pigeons were stunningly beautiful on this ancient fence just outside Notre Dame in Paris.  The bright blue sky that Sunday made their feathers appear even bluer than they were.  Their attitudes were fun to capture, too. 

This photo of the painting was taken through the non glare plexi, so the colors are a bit off and the values not quite as dark as the painting in some areas.

Hi Sandy. Long time no see your posts. Love the pigeons; the colors are so beautifully and softly complementary.

Hi Sandy,

I was in the Water Lily Gallery in Syracuse, Indiana a little over a week ago and loved the work you had in there! I just now received an email about your upcoming workshop in Cincinatti, so I clicked on the link to your blog. Again I loved your work, then put two and two together, when I realized you were represented by Deanna. Wish I had the funds on hand to take the workshop!! Maybe someday I will be able to study with you! Keep up the great work!
