I planned this painting with the idea of having a representative from several species of black birds for this "funeral". The day after I began the painting, my brother-in-law died suddenly. So I call this painting, "Memorial". https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=171889210 171889210 Ivan https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203084246 203084246 Owl oil stick on canvas 12"x12" 2012 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=172920872 172920872 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203084247 203084247 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203084248 203084248 The Promise oil stick on canvas 16"x20" 2011 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=172921454 172921454 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203084249 203084249 Madonna and Child oil stick over collage on canvas 30"x20" 2011 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=172921455 172921455 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203084250 203084250 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203084251 203084251 Roxie and Otis oil stick on canvas 16"x20" 2011 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=172921459 172921459 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203084252 203084252 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203084253 203084253 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203084254 203084254 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203084255 203084255 The Fox and the Raven oil stick on canvas 24"x24" 2012 It's whatever fairy tale you can dream up. https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=172921463 172921463 https://mtdietz.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203084256 203084256 Winter Wren oil stick on Claybord 8"x10" 2010 Done on Claybord which is a support with a clay base, I put down a layer of colors and after that dries, I put another layer on top.
