2021 Bird Calendars

This 2021 Calendar features some of my favourite bird paintings. Check it out and order here. Please share with anyone who might like one!

Sparrows and Pink Blossoms

I am on a bit of a roll with the sparrows – I’m painting a couple more after this. I am really enjoying working with the brighter colours. Painting flowers is new to me, so I’m having fun figuring that out.

Adding a few flowers to my bird paintings has been fun. It’s a nice opportunity to try out new colour combinations. I can’t remember the last time I used pink!

Working on something bigger this time. With the larger size, there’s much more background space to consider. I tried to make it interesting, but not too busy, so that the focus stays on the birds. 

Sparrows on the Fence

I like it when I can mix up the greens with another colour. Especially purple! Helps the birds to pop out, I think.

Great Blue Heron

I never get tired of seeing all of the Blue Herons in Jericho Park in Vancouver. There are so many – nesting in the trees, feeding at the ponds and flying over. Further down along Spanish Banks, dozens wade into low-tide looking for a meal. Lots of painting opportunities.

Hummingbird

There seems to be a lot of hummingbirds around lately. I see or hear one every time I am out for a walk. I guess they are enjoying the stretch of sunny weather and perhaps the quiet, empty streets.
