...but it is a whiskey painting, according to the rules: Max size=4x5" watercolor painted with whiskey (or your spirit of choice) instead of water. And it's recommended, for full enjoyment of the experience, that you imbibe a bit of said spirit while you work. Which I did. So it is a whiskey painting, as far as I could go, it just ain't bona-fide.
If you find this at all interesting, the full lowdown on the WPA (Whiskey Painters of America, not the work program from the 30's) is on their official website, a link to which is in the picture in my sidebar, down below the blog list and Meditation sites list - aw what the hell, I'll just put a link right here so you won't have to scroll so much: Whiskey Painters of America.
You have to be sponsored by a standing member to get in, there are only 150 members tops, and the roster is currently full, bit I figure if I start showing off for 'em now, someday maybe... ;-)
Oh yeah, the painting. Don't have a title for it yet, but it's from a photo I took of a little decoration - I don't reckon it's real; it is hollow inside and has a little hole in front, but I don't think there's a bird that small - that hangs from a holly berry tree outside my kitchen window.
