Even though I LOVE winter and *s*n*o*w*, I have been thinking about springtime lately. I've also already had people asking about the Bird in Hand pieces I make each year. I usually make those in March or April, but I thought I'd do something related.
These original watercolors are inspired by the saying, "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush". They are quite whimsical as you don't usually see a hand in the air holding a bird! I have done three paintings, same theme, but different designs.
They may be seen at Simply Primitives, The Primitive Gathering, and TDIPT Mercantile (see links in sidebar under Honeysuckle Lane Wares Are Sold Here). I have also made note cards from the original watercolors. I had such fun painting these, I think I'll do more in the future!
Oh I just love them all.ReplyDelete

You've combined some of my favorite themes- hands, hearts, and birds- lovely!ReplyDelete
