I recently moved my studio and I'm releasing the paintings and studies that I found during the move. I found more than 100 artworks that I will be releasing for under $100.00 so keep watching. In this painting I created three similar studies because I love the juxtaposition of the stillness of the watching 'Dale in contrast to the racing and playing 'Dales. The idea of opposites and paradoxes in one painting gives it a a lovely energy.

I recently moved my studio. During the packing stage I found over 100 painting studies that I'd never released. One of these paintings is this charming study of a Red-winged blackbird in flight.
According to Wikipedia: "In art, a study is a drawing, sketch or painting done in preparation for a finished piece, or as visual notes. Studies are often used to understand the problems involved in rendering subjects and to plan the elements to be used in finished works, such as light, color, form, perspective and composition. Studies can have more impact than more-elaborately planned work, due to the fresh insights the artist gains while exploring the subject. The excitement of discovery can give a study vitality."
I think this definition accurately describes this study - vital, creative and unusual. Because this is a study it is priced under $100.00. Keep watching, I plan on releasing all 100 studies.

Terrier Shadow by Sandra Merwin
About This Painting:
Sometimes the black and white of charcoal conveys emotion that color can't. Sometimes I feel bombarded by color on the internet. Bright colors all fighting for my attention. When that happens I pick up my charcoal and just draw.
Size: 9 in X 12 in (22.9 cm X 30.5 cm)
