The Barn Swallow is Finished

Here's the finished barn swallow painting sitting in a frame.  The differences from the last photo are small but, hopefully, important.  Mainly I've lightened the sky holes in the background and darkened the lower portion.  On the bird, I lightened the shadow under his left wing, deepened the tips of the tail, and worked more on the feet.

The barn swallow is the only swallow with a deeply forked tail, which I think is so elegant.
