Claude by Fuz-Caforio-Art Claude by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Acrylic on Belgian linen. 20 x 20cm. Portrait of an ostrich. This little painting took less than a day to complete. The composition is quite simple but I really like the character of this goofy looking bird. I added the stalk of grass as an afterthought. After all, ostriches are known to eat just about anything!

Oh, this is too funny. I just love the bit of straw hanging from his mouth. I know he's an ostrich, but I imagine him a hillbilly ostrich, perhaps even a friend of Tom Sawyer because of that straw. I'd like to think Mark Twain would approve. Good work :)
