A bird for my Mom

Happy New Year to you.

I decided to paint a piece for my Mom. I hope she likes this little bird, which I had a lot of fun painting.I am planning to put a glaze over it, so it is still "work-in-progress" for now.

Dear Evelyn,
Oh, so cute sparrow!!! Evelyn, but do you feel some differences in looks-like between Australian sparrows and northern hemisphere’s ones? I feel and cannot tell how. Anyway, I love little birds, look like angels.
Cheers, Sadami

Lovely, lovely, lovely. How could anyone NOT like your little bird! All the very best in the New Year to you, Evelyn!

The sparrow is so sweet and the blossom and background are beautiful too. Happy New Year!

Evelyn said...

Thank you all for your encouragement.

@Sadami: Haha, don't know much about bird, I am afraid... but I do prefer the small sweet ones to the larger birds of prey...

Very fine, Evelyn!
«Mme la Vache» loves birds, so «Louis» will make sure she sees this!

«Louis» wishes you all the best this New Year!

EVA said...

Absolutely beautiful Evelyn!! Wonderful colours!

Evelyn said...

Thanks Everyone. The painting goes to Mom at the end of January. I will know her response then :)

The reason this bridge looks sunny is because the photo was taken in August!

It's been cold (for the Bay Area - 8ÂșC) and rainy all day today, so «Louis» decided to post a photo from when it WAS warm and sunny!
