Two Birds Colourful Painting


I've finished the painting that I showed you in my last post. Above is a crop of it. Can you see the other bird on the right hand side? It looks as though that's the other bird's reflection doesn't it? As though he's looking in the mirror!


 Here's another close up crop of the same painting.
I made lots of layers of lovely bright pinks, blues and golds and made some scratching zig-zag patterns while the paint was still wet.


Here's the whole painting. It measures 40 x 40cm, (that's 16inches square). It's hanging on my kitchen wall at the moment but it will eventually be exhibited in the summer. I'll tell you all about that another day. :)
I've put a gallery on my new website, CLICK HERE to see. If you'd like to leave a comment on the guestbook page that would be lovely! :)

Bye for now, have a lovely weekend. :) The sun appears to have arrived at last! xx

Oh that is lovely, yes, just like one bird is looking at its reflection. We get long-tailed tits and they sometimes mistake their reflection on our kitchen window for a mate or a rival! Quite funny to watch them pecking at the pane, you would think they would learn.
I shall go for a look round your new gallery. I know I will love it!
Have a great weekend.

p.s. I agree, tulips are lovely. I have some bright red ones out already, photo needed! I've bought some trailing lobelia for my baskets, my Dad often used to plant his borders with blue lobelia, white alyssum and red geraniums. He loved his garden.
