“The Golden Ones”
An 12″ x 24″ acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas of a golden pheasant being carried on a lady’s arm. This was finished this evening at dusk and was photographed in that lighting.
I did this using glazing techniques and is my first piece where I did that. This is my best painting so far in life. I look forward to making more like this.
“The Great Golden Pheasant and His Beautiful Lady”
An 11″ x 14″ acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas by Diana Mae Potts; copyright 2013.
Sold on eBay July 27, 2013 and now has a happy home in Michigan. I grew up on a farm in central New Jersey where there were pheasants. For awhile we had a pair of golden pheasants. Their splendid plumage was something I never forgot and so in later years I sought out to do studies of them. I now can portray them from memory which is how I did this one.
Another painting of a lady and a golden pheasant will be finished today and put on eBay.
After a long time after getting an auction on eBay, here is my latest block print made for the eBay group, Nibblefest.

A 4″ x 6″ graphite drawing of a doll that depicts am ethnic group maybe in western Asia. I drew her hands as they were found although I added the thumb on her left hand which makes it look unrealistic.
It needs some touching up and perhaps some kind of background.
