I am busy painting for an exhibition on 22nd March at Gail’s Place.
I have just finished this one of a red-headed kingfisher, inspired by a photograph by Ian Montgomery I found on Australian Parrots and Birds.
What do you think? I love birds and I love painting them as well. I am painting a Gouldian finch at the moment. It is a strange thing but when I start I have no idea how i”m going to manage to find the bird on the canvas, but somehow he emerges and I am blissed out. No seriously, my BP drops to about 90 systolic and I float for a couple of days before I start my next project. I am usually pleasantly surprised that it is my hand that has done the work. How could that be? It excites and intrigues me.
Anyhow, ‘peace’ people, Rosa.
