New Bird Paintings

Here are some new bird paintings! You’ll notice these are a little more detailed than some of the older ones with a decorative, leafy background. I’m happy with the way this series is developing.

I created “Parrot in a Tree” as a donation to a silent auction for RESTORE (formerly Rape Crisis Service) and the V-Day International Spotlight campaign. RESTORE provides crisis intervention and support services to women, children, and men who are survivors of sexual assault and their significant others.

“Cardinal” is a commission for a person who saw my bird paintings in RIT’s Shop One² (a fine art and craft gallery representing RIT affiliated artists as well as my favorite place to buy birthday presents on campus). I have eight bird paintings on display at Shop One² at the moment. I’ll post pictures of the set up soon! It’s exciting to have work for sale in a physical location.

I have one more bird painting in the works (another commissioned piece!). As a reminder, if you’d like your own feathery friend you can commission a unique work of art through my Etsy store.
