I’ve been wanting to do some smaller size artworks for some upcoming art shows, and one in particular for a show where all artwork has to be 11 × 8.5 inches. I’ve also been planning to do a series of bird artworks, so I got inspired by Jan Piller’s beautiful photography to make one of a common grackle. Jan gave me the go ahead to create this work.

Liquid gold leaf, colored pencils, acrylic and oil pastels on 11 × 8.5 inches light gray cover stock

Having a great love animals, fairytales, and world mythology, Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique illustrations. Her artwork strikes a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her artworks have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.
