My Colourful Birds

Two Birds, mixed media

 Hello, how are you on this December day? You might remember these paintings I'm about to show you when I blogged about them in the summer here and here.
Since then, they've been on their adventures in exhibitions but now they're back, I've listed them for sale in my Etsy shop. :)

'Summer Breeze', mixed media

Each one measures 40 x 40cm and is painted on 3½cm deep box style canvas. (That's 16 x 16ins, 1½ins deep).

I love the colours, so bright and warm. I have them on my wall at home at the moment to cheer up these winter days!


But I'll be more than happy to sell them to a lovely new owner! :)


I love to paint birds. My fascination with them came originally from reading fairy tales. (I still like to read fairy tales!) They appear as other beings, having human-like attributes. 

To me they convey emotions and are such a lovely shape to draw and paint!

I thought I'd have a re-jig of the sections in my shop, listing the paintings according to subject matter rather than materials used. 
What do you think? :)

I love these, they look like little pieces of summer, almost collage like with the surface pattern and colour.
