"Sally" 5 x 5 inches retouched - Sold
On Sunday, Sally found a home. So this happy artist pulled her from her temporary home in my studio and to my horror, she had a scratch!
When I painted Sally, I seem to remember doing something new with my palette knife, but don't think I noticed, that part of the knife actually placed a fairly sharp scratch on the top of her tail feathers. Looking closer, I also noticed another on her breastbone.
So we had to fix that. The top image is of Sally after the repair. The bottom is Sally before. Look at the far right just above her top tail feathers and then to the far left by her breast bone. How could I have missed these scratches?
