A Scissor-Tailed Fly Catcher for Today

Today's 5" x 7" oil study for my 75 for $75 project is a scissor-tailed flycatcher.  When painting a ST flycatcher there is always the dilemma - do you paint a little bird, leaving room for the tail or do you paint a big bird and imply that the tail is there - out of the image.  As the tail is really what a scissor-tailed flycatcher is all about, I elected to go with the 'little' bird.

There are unsold studies in my 75 for $75 project.  You can see many of the 5" x 7"s in one place if you click on this link.  If the little image doesn't have a red dot, it is still available.  To see a larger version of the study, just click on the thumbnail.
