The Party Favor Details

16 x 20 Acrylic on Panel – $975.00

Okay, seriously…how could I NOT paint this guy? I spotted this captive Hornbill while in San Diego, and knew on the spot that it was something I wanted to paint. The garish colors and patterns of the Hornbill seemed to fit beautifully with the kind of gesture and life I strive for in my looser paintings. Just after the painting’s completion, I was talking with a fellow artist who said it looked like a party favor that had exploded (meaning that as a compliment…or, at least I think…hmmm). We laughed about it, but I thought that was actually appropriate for the kind of light-hearted feeling of the bird’s appearance, and the title fell into place.
