Birds in a Vase
Some Birds in a Vase
Honestly, I don't know what it is about Birds. I just like them. I am afraid of them, too, because when I was a small child, my older sisters made me watch Alfred Hitchcock's THE BIRDS. I have had birds come down my chimney and just the flutter of them stuck in the chimney flew (flu-I'm sticking with flew) made me scared to death. Anyways, I am not really afraid of them and in fact think they are beautiful. This particular painting was executed on pastel paper and is very similar to sandpaper. It was a little tricky to paint. The painting is no longer available, but you can buy the print at Spicherandco.com.
When selecting this particular frame, I was drawn to the gold-leafed liner. It was beautiful and fully in tact. The gold adds an importance to the simplicity of the painting style. I love to experiment with different styles of painting and absolutely love and admire almost all artwork. I needed to put that disclaimer in there because I don't appreciate obscene artwork and have seen some. Sorry.
