Only one in the entire universe...and she could be yours!

Well this is one bird that didn't want to be photographed by my trusty Canon. I've tried photographing her many times in a variety of lighting situations but every time, her face was washed out. I finally had her professionally photographed. She is currently hanging out with my other creations at my studio/gallery at 79 Beekman Street in Saratoga Springs, NY. If you are in the area, stop in and say hello. She's been getting a LOT of attention there. 

I can't see what you see on your monitors. On mine, she looks a little dark but I am hesitant to make any color changes. 

Firebird is another Phoenix Rising that was born from my imagination. It is not a new painting. I've had yet another phoenix in the recesses of my mind which is the most powerful depiction of all. I have avoided making an attempt to paint it. I suppose I will when the spirit moves me and the time is right.

Today's Quotation:  When I investigate and when I discover that the forces of the heavens and the planets are within ourselves, then truly I seem to be living among the gods. 
-Leon Battista Alberti
