The leftover green paint that I mixed for the bluebird painting was used for the background here (mixed with a little bit more blue and red to darken). I don’t know why, but there is something about this shade of green that I really like. It looks so much more contemporary than the earthy colors I usually use, but I love it. I hope you like it too!

This month, James Parker posted pictures of four different birds on his Windows to the Words challenge blog. I just recently came across his blog and thought I’d join in as well. My first entry is this little bluebird — I really like his bright blue wings.

The other night I completed another bird painting for the challenge. It is not a daily painting as it is slightly bigger. It’s a different style from all the others that I have done before, and I am really excited to share it with you to see if you will like it as well. I will post it here as soon as it is dry enough to scan.

Be sure to check out the Windows to the Words blog to see the different interpretations from all the artists who participated.
