Did you know:
I fall in love with every painting that I make. It sounds totally full of myself as I read it back, but I don't mean it to be that way... What I mean to say is that I love these guys as though they are their own little birdie beings! I'm like a proud mama helping them come out of their shells. It's super cheesy, I realize this, but its true. So every day I tell my friend Kris as we walk, "Oh I love this new one I'm working on... I think he's my favorite!" Now that I think about it, she might be really sick of hearing that, hmmm.
Anyhoo, onto the painting. One of my favorite subjects (within the subject of birds) is the little fat baby bird. I am finding that I am not alone on that sentiment, so I will be creating an army of little fluffy and extra plump birdettes. But to toughen up the sweetness a bit, they're going to have rock names. Enter: "Purple Haze"... She's a hard-core, tougher-than-nails little baby Chickadee:) Okay, so she's really not that tough, but man, does she pack a punch of heartstring-tugging cuteness.
On a not so silly side, I have to take a quick leave of absence from my blog while I do some minor surgery- but don't worry everyone, I'll be back in no time ;)
Original painting will be available at Genesis Gallery Hawaii. Contact information is on my website: www.ktoart.com/galleries.html
