I’m starting off the year with something bright and springy.

You can bid on this one at Daily Paintworks.

Chickadee and Berries

While this is not strictly a Christmas painting, I think it would fit in nicely with our decorations this year.

Unless someone else wants it? For sale here!

Pine Siskin

Pine Siskin 8″ x 8″

I’ve seen this type of bird around, but hadn’t heard of a Pine Siskin, which is a type of finch. This painting is for sale here.

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.

Obviously, I paint birds because I like them. I love to be able to identify the birds that I see, but other than how they look and sound, I don’t really know much. With each bird I paint, I have been reading a little about each one. I am really enjoying that part of the process. Here’s some bird trivia: House Sparrows always live near humans – often surviving on seeds, livestock feed and human food. You probably see them in your backyard all the time, but you won’t find them in the forest.  

I have lots of bird prints up on Etsy. Take a look!

House Finch

I don’t see finches very often, so when I do, I feel lucky. As I sit here looking out at the winter rain pouring down, it is nice to think of a warm spring day when I might get to see one again.
