Bluebird of Happiness


Recently an artist friend of mine graciously gave me a magazine
 with lots of birds and flowers  in it. 
 The Mag is called "Birds and Blooms" Beauty in your own Backyard

I really appreciated the gift
We both love to paint birds and 
she knew I would be inspired by the issue.

Well I certainly was.
here is my take on a picture from the Magazine.







My watercolor of the bluebird
standing on a fence post.


In the mag the bluebird has a wormy in his beak
Did you notice that?
I did not make the worm in my painting.



this is  140 lb  watercolor paper

Bluebirds are so beautiful


flowers and birds are summery sweetness
and I love painting them both




Yea, I know, I changed the white daisy to yellow ones
I'm a cheater,  LOL
Hard to do white flowers in watercolors
at least for me.
 I'm a newbie at this stuff after all


 Happy Trails to YOU!

Have a sunshiny, wonderful day!
KAT

I love watercolors! It's been many years since I painted with watercolors, but it was one of my favorites while going to school.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I love your paintings. I love watching Sue Scheewe paint with water colors and acrylics on her PBS show. Here is a link to some of her stuff. http://www.painting-books.com/scheeweartworkshopdvdsetgettingstartedwithwatercolorandacrylicsusanscheewebrown.aspx
I am only putting it here because I think she may have painted white some white flowers. Love your china cup & saucer what a sweet memento of family. Your chicken painting is cute. I follow a blog called Chickens in the Road and it would fit right in with her blog.
Hope you have a great, rest of the week. Also, have you heard of Pink Saturday from Beverly at How Sweet the Sound? Just thought I'd throw it out htere.

I wish I had even a little bit of your talent. That's a great painting.

You're really amazing with watercolors, Kat. I have a new appreciation of birds lately, so I really like this one. :)

Thanks for sharing it at the Sunburnt Cow Party. I featured you over at the Screaming Sardine.

Cheers,
Tracy
