Here is the final version for "Home". Thank you everyone who contributed their feedback! I really took it to heart. Some great ideas. This is for a solo show I will be doing at Screaming Sky gallery in Portland Oregon this coming October/November.
I love this version. The bird is just right because it is closer to the viewer and bigger for that reason. The bird looks masculine and that is good. It will fit. Is your show this year, 2013? I hope to see it. Beautiful. Marta. please write email@example.com
Nice I like it how you changed their hair and added the fence I just wish the bird was a bit smaller , It looks like a big crow and it feels like it wont fit in the home, besides that this is really beautiful, both the concept and the painting style
I love how I just looked at this and thought "oh wow I'm so glad he added the bird house"... the differences that color makes The blue shirt makes the bird house stand as an equal to the bird, nifty how that works. I love the addition of the fence and they way you've finished off the hair and sky. It puts a nice sense of polish on the whole thing. I like it!
The fence turned out to be an awesome suggestion I'm glad you didn't go with the white picket one, thought - dark suits the atmosphere much better I think I'm most awed by the amount of color in the necks and hands, though Love it when shadows aren't just a single tone.
