Painting

Just a quickie today because we went away for the weekend!

I love to paint/draw birds and I thought I'd share some more paintings/drawings with you. This one is called "Party Animals."
The sort of ghostly bird in the middle inspired a (large) painting called "Bird Funeral."
Although I like parts of it, other parts bug me--so I think I'm going to redo it. Just waiting for the inspiration to strike!

Happy Sunday!

I love the bird funeral, it's beautiful in the colors and the haunting quality of the ghosts in the background... sad too, though beautiful.

I love bird funeral. It's bright, yet morbid. Sort of like my life. I think they're great!

You are very talented! I love your paintings of the birds. And I really love the "Bird Funeral" painting. Please leave it alone - it is perfect the way it is. I still look back on paintings I have done and would change things but I have learned I am my worst critic!

Your bird funeral painting reminded me of a story I read once in "Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul". It was about this pair of birds that had a baby that died . The mother bird was so distraught she wouldn't leave her baby's side for days, and grieved so hard. The mate loved her so much that every once in awile her would lure her away to eat and such, and while she did he would gently place piece by piece bedding to cover up the dead baby. Soon the baby was covered and the mama bird was able to let go. It was a beautiful story...and your art is beautiful too.

I like bird funeral. I am very fond of water colors work. I wouldn't change a thing because it would be too much work however I can't help but wonder what it would look like if everything was more watered and not quite so sharp and vivid. Something where you gave the essence of a bird funeral but you didn't realize that was going on until you studied the piece of art just a little bit more. Not like a Where's Waldo or a Magic Eye kind of thing, but more blended and less crisp. Again, I repeat ... I would not change a thing; however you opened that door all by yourself missy so I am just wondering ...

The end.
