It never ceases to amaze me how many problems need to be solved as I work on a painting. These pieces were originally one large painting that I had hurried to prepare for a demonstration piece. I worked on it long after the demonstration and really struggled with the composition - from lack of planning!!!
I talked with a couple of artist friends and they made several great suggestions, one of which was to make two smaller pieces from the larger one.
I used some mat corners to play with various cropping options and this was the result. The image with three pelicans is called "Chuck, Zack and Mack" and the painting with two pelicans
is called, "Dick and Jack".
I'll be adding these to my etsy shop soon!
