Recently, I’ve been painting birds. I did a couple for one of the bathrooms in the house I live in, to complement a series of birdhouses that a roommate put up. They look nice together, along with the shower curtain that has…birds.
I live where the birds constantly come and visit, due to the feeders we put out. During the fall, winter and spring, the chickadees, titmouses, red-breasted Grosbeaks and cardinals swoop in all day long, while the finches and woodpeckers get their share, too.
A friend suggested that I paint a “Birds of Michigan” series (this friend REALLY likes birds). So, I’ve decided to go for it. This is the first painting I’ve completed; it’s a titmouse.
I hope you like this little feller. He has that cheeky look that titmouses get; I love their beady eyes and tuft of hair. I think he’s quite satisfied with himself!

He is very cute and nicely done. I am also a painter, but rarely put my paintings on my blog – too much stealing. My other blog, not this one from where I am commenting has some of my art.
Thank you. I didn’t think about stealing. I would love to look at your art, I’ll go check it out.
Thank you. Here is a link to the other blog and a computer painting. http://gardenwalkgardentalk.com/2013/03/10/digital-painting-process-red-tailed-hawk/
The blog I am commenting from is a nature blog.

Love it and so much detail.
