“Think Like a Bluebird”, a captivating new oil on panel painting by Craig Blietz portrays an enchanting moment between two ubiquitous creatures, a white Holstein cow and a bluebird. They communicate in an empathetic manner through eye contact. Does the larger beast respect the smaller creature’s place on the branch? Or perhaps, each is admiring the others natural strength and beauty while considering their differences. The contrast between the muscular cow and the delicate bird heightens the drama, but does not cause tension. Through serious, old master painting techniques and careful treatment of light and color, Craig Blietz is able to make the viewer believe in the possibility of such an unlikely encounter in this quixotic work. With an image size of 19.5 x 28.5 inches, “Think Like a Bluebird” gives the viewer ample space to get lost within the beautiful world depicted.
