“Mourning Birds, Drawing”

by Kelley Hensing

This drawing started as one of the concept sketches I’d created in my process towards a final painting. The painting was created for a group show at Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa, OK, with the theme of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds”. The piece was very well received and sold during the show’s opening. Since then the sketches have been staring at me… watching. During these long winter nights I was able to finish rendering one of the alternate versions, and and found a creepy vintage frame that fit the final sketch just right. The frame has been left as found, to retain an aged look. The drawing has been mounted on panel, and has a slight hint of pale pink in a few of the center flowers.
