Spreading Their Wings

Spreading Their Wings, 8x10" oil on gessobord ($250)
It is fun to go "hunting" in an art museum for someone who is not only expressive in their body language but fits the painting they are studying.  I didn't realize until I got home and looked at my photographs that this gentleman's hands in his pockets made them look like wings... and he was looking at birds in flight.  Perfect.  

I will caution artists that once you start doing this you have to remind yourself to also enjoy the art on the walls!  I also have to be careful of what my husband says looks like stalking.   Sometimes when I see someone wearing interesting clothes, I walk around waiting for them to stop in front of a painting that compliments their look.
