Daily Study: Chelsea Robin
A father’s day gift for Steve. Oil on board, 8×8”
The English robins are so different from the US variety. We loved this little fellow, and he (she?) sat in the garden of our London, Chelsea garden apartment and visited us daily. :) I finally finished the painting today after being dissatisfied with earlier attempts – I still struggle with oils! grrr… Steve likes it – a nice reminder of our wonderful trip!
