The Offering

by Erica Lyn Schmidt

This piece was created in February 2018 for the Month of Love ‘White’ prompt.

I approached the ‘White’ theme from three directions: first was the color choice of white for the hummingbirds and the flower being presented. Second, white symbolizes purity with the innocence and bashfulness of the couple. Finally I played around with the effect of being very heavy-handed with white in the color mixing process, which resulted in a ghostly pastel palette that limited the saturation of the colors.

This painting is on a 6″x8″ oval cradled panel. The sides are finished: it comes wired and ready to hang.

I am a painter and sculptor who specializes in traditional mixed media. My artistic journey began in the field of scientific illustration, but it gradually made its way into the realm of imaginative realism (my true love at last). I love exploring the charm and whimsy of animals and characters who delight in their own little worlds, and aim to bring that joy to those who experience my work.

I share my love of art and birds as the Creative Director of the BirdWhisperer Project online art community, and my work can also be found in scientific museums, children’s books, and private collections.

In addition to creating fine art, I collaborate on many forms of illustration work with my husband Anthony J. Schmidt. We call Wisconsin our home, which we share with our mini-artist daughter Penny.
