For the Birds!

If you haven’t noticed, I paint a lot of birds.  In fact, so far this year, I’ve painted 26! That seems unbelieveable…even to me.

Why do I paint so many birds…it’s simply because no matter the season, people love them.  I also truly enjoy painting them and adding a little personality to each one I create.   
I’ve been surrounded by birds most of my life, not only birds of the garden variety but also in my parent’s house.  My mom has collected bird figurines and paintings for years.  The collection started out mainly as just blue birds (being that her favorite color is blue) but have expanded to include many other varieties over the years.   Over the years, I’ve also painted a few birds to add to her collection.  Here’s a glimpse of a few…. and a few of the ones that I have done over the years.

I used to make these birdhouses and sell them at craft shows when I was first starting out. (That's one of my Mom's dolls that she made in the background - isn't she sweet?)

Some little stools that I painted for my mother years ago

Now…back to work- can you guess what I happen to be sketching??  

On another note…if you haven’t already noticed- there’s a Christmas in July giveaway contest going on until the end of the month. Click on the blue bar at the top of the website or go to my facebook page to enter. Have a great week!
