Land of the Birds


I can not believe we are already in February. February equals Valentines Day for me, which means hopefully I should be getting a surprise from my husband. (Hint Hint.. Timothy if you are reading this) :)

I am participating in the Love Show - which the final artist count for the show is a huge 350 and opening night is next Friday.

I am also working on a few paintings for a nursery and it's hard to have spring thoughts when we are in gross rainy winter. I decided to revisit doing some paintings of birds with some spring atmosphere. Here are two sparrows in a cherry tree with some fun stripes in the back ground.

This is absolutely darling. True, Valentines Day does make me think of birds chirping - I guess because I think of love blossoming, and birds are usually found in blossoming trees :)

I like the sparrow piece. The sparrow is small and not so colorful but a very visually appealing bird.

Beautiful little birdies! I too am struggling with the dreary days of winter, but thoughts of spring keep me going. It's wonderful when you can lose yourself in the imaginary spring of a painting.

How did you learn to paint? Parents? Friends?
For us newcomers to your blog can you write a bit about how you started and what your process is???

I always love hearing about other painter's lives...

Thanks for the blog comments!!!

Baking your paint so that it will dry faster - very funny. I like my art medium rare.

Thanks for checking out my little blog. You asked about materials. I am not very exotic. I've finally graduated to pens with permanent ink. For color I normally use pencils, but for the latest doodle I just colored it in Photoshop.

I still love your work. You're good!!
