sister painting...

I can't remember off the top of my head if I showed you this painting that I made this past spring~ I think so...
anyways, I was commissioned by my friend who bought it to make a painting to go with it. It was an interesting challenge since I didn't have the first painting in person, and I didn't have all of the same papers, Ect... but I love the way the little sister came out:8" x 8" x 1.75"

all those curlicues at the bottom are from an antique ledger from the early 1900's. One whole column of a page was filled with this person's (F.W. Knight I believe) stamped signature. Something about the repetition is so beautiful to me. The little bird is a Vesper Sparrow.

So this is what they look like together:
