An Example of Bazzlenoorian Megafauna: the Giant Upsidedown Hummingbird
First Painting! Acrylic on canvas panel. 11" x 14".

Yay, first painting! I love the funny spiral mountain coming out of the realistic landscape and the little question mark in the corner as well. Can we have a detail of the bird?

Thanks everyone! Heather, i did the landscape first, and then thought, how can i inject some magooficalness into this? I'll put a detail of the bird up soon, which brings me to a

Question for all: what's the best way to apprehend the image of a painting? I usually get my drawings scanned. The oversize scanner at Kinkos, though, won't take sturdy, non-flimsy stuff, like canvas...any ideas?

I would like an upside down bird and if I had one I'd wear and upside down hat.

Thanks alot Nichole, Hugo, Yiting, & Geoffrey! :)

Great, I can't wait to see the bird. I'm thinking about the same thing with getting large files of paintings. It was suggested to me that I scan them at home, one quarter at a time, and then put them together in photoshop. I'll let you know if if works for me :)

Woo-hoo! That spiral mountain and bird look awesome! Actually, I don't think the bird is upside down, it's all the rest! (I had to look at this upside down!)
About the scanning thing... I scan my bigger pieces in 2 or more parts and then put them together in photoshop, like Heather said. It works perfectly, but needs a bit of patience. Canvas will be a little trickier, I guess. You have to find a way, to put even pressure on the scanning part (a heavy book?).

Haha yeah i considered taking the photo with the Hummingbird right side up, but the details in the landscape became lost...I haven't really had time to look into scanning the image, but when i do i'll let you guys know how it goes, if it works, and that kind of thing. I'm looking into buying some studio space soon. I'm painting in my parent's basement and the lighting and space just isn't conducive to good work...
