Hand Carved Wooden Bird Necklaces

Standard

My mom has made three new, beautiful necklaces hand carved out of Juniper wood. These rustic bird’s are so cool and unique. Their pose makes them look like they’re in flight. I love all of the colors she chose and how they have a lovely gold sheen.

Night Hawk-Watercolor Painting

Standard

Art Prints
Night Hawks are very fascinating birds. I had the pleasure of seeing one sitting down in the needles amidst the pine trees one day. He was very well camouflaged in the midst of  the dead pine  needles.Their eyes are so black that they look as if they’re nothing more than black holes. I had always seen these birds flying at night, but that had been  the first time I had actually seen one up close. I love the whooshing sound they make while diving, and their little chirping noise grows on you. If you are a bird watcher, I would suggest you study this one.

Green Hummingbird-Watercolor Painting

This painting may seem simple enough, but I faced some challenging moments in it’s development. Watercolor is one of my favorite media’s to use. You can work with it and spread it in most of the areas you want before it drys. But if you don’t make sure it drys before applying another layer, it mixes in too much. As I paint I’m learning more through my mistakes. 😉

I’m a great color fan, and love most of the colors I put into this painting. The final touch was suggested to me by my Dad, who told me to add yellow to the background which tied in all the yellow that I had put into the flower and bird. He told me that the color of the background looked too cool and that the yellow would warm the colors up. And you know what? He was right! My Dad sure knows his stuff!

Ruby Throated Green Hummingbird- Watercolor painting

Such beauty in design and color can be seen in some of the tinniest of creatures. Humming birds come in a verity of colors with feathers that have almost a metallic sheen. I don’t feel that I have captured the essence of what the Creator has made, but I did really enjoy this painting. Humming birds are very graceful; they are unique birds, especially in North America, being that they are the only birds that drink flower nectar; a very lovely way to get food. They are much like a flower themselves, having radiant colors glistening off their delicate wings. Their wings beat so fast, that they seem to float rather than flap. These are the smallest birds in the world but reflect beauty in a magnified way.

I was surprised at how many times I was able to go over my picture with paint. Something I’ve learned about using watercolor, is to never give up! And keep on going until your satisfied. Of course, The most professional watercolor artists are those who can get done in as few of strokes as possible. I haven’t mastered that technique yet.
