Birds and Birdhouses Painting Variations

In my previous post you saw my newly completed digital painting consisting of three colorful birdhouses with cardinals, goldfinches, and bluebirds. This scene is fine for prints but since Pixels now offers sizes of throw pillows, mostly square, this horizontal format doesn't work well for them.

One of the great advantages of painting digitally over traditional oils is the ability to move elements around in the painting. This makes it easy for me to rearrange things to better fit the square format of the throw pillows. So here I've created three new variations of the original painting, one with just the bluebirds and the yellow birdhouse, another with just he cardinals and blue birdhouse, and the other with just the goldfinches and red birdhouse. Each design is available individually on throw pillows as well as fine art prints and greeting cards.

Digital Birdhouses Painting Finished

I finally finished my first completely digital bird painting created in Photoshop CS5, a scene of a variety of bird species and some colorful birdhouses in a garden of spring flowers. Here we have eastern bluebirds with a yellow schoolhouse birdhouse, northern red cardinals on a bright blue octagonal birdhouse, and American goldfinches on a red cottage-like birdhouse. I named this piece "Primary Colors" because of the red, yellow, and blue birds and birdhouses. The flowers include white dogwood blossoms and pink, red, and white cosmos flowers.

You can see a larger version of this image on my Pixels.com page, as well as high-res zoom details. You can also get this image on prints and greeting cards there as well.

I'm also happy to announce that, once I submitted this image to the licensing agency, it was very quickly licensed by Bits and Pieces to be used on jigsaw puzzles. Unfortunately, it won't be out until Feb 2016.

In the mean time, I've added a few products to my Zazzle store featuring this image. Because the Bits and Pieces contract is an exclusive one I can't put this on jigsaw puzzles in my Zazzle store. But I have put it on several other products so far including iPad covers, pillows, throw blankets, wallets, mouse pads, and bags, to name a few. I'll be adding more as time permits so check back periodically to see what's new, or contact me and let me know if you'd like to see this on a particular product and I'll do my best to get it up there for you quickly.

Five Indian Pony Variations Now Available

With all the digital editing of paintings I've been doing in Photoshop there are 4 variations of the original Native American War Horse painting now available. The original is the chestnut version with war paint shown first image. The second is the same chestnut pinto horse without war paint. Third is a sepia version of the chestnut horse with war paint. Fourth is a bay pinto version with face war paint color changes. The fifth is a buckskin pinto version, also with the new face paint colors.

The original chestnut pinto horse painting is sold. But all these images are available as fine art prints, greeting cards, and more through pixels.com. Click on an image to go to the product page for that image, or click here to see the entire selection of horse images available.

These images are also available on a wide variety of other products, from coffee mugs to iPad covers to wall clocks, through my Zazzle Store here.
