Yay it’s done!
I am kind of enjoying this bird with florals series.
Today we went to Mike’s (my husband’s colleague) place. He invited us over BBQ. He kept the coals on the grill ready in his backyard. It was our first American BBQ experience. We loved outdoor bbq and he was the master of grill.
When he visited our apartment couple of weeks ago, he saw the paintings on wall. He was so much interested in my bird paintings, and asked if he can keep those frames as we might be moving back to India soon. so I gifted him all of the three paintings and he loved it.
I was so happy that my artworks were going to new home, not one or two but three at a time.
Here is this little birdie for today. Made this much progress on this little guy. This time using St. Petersburg White Nights colors on 140lb cold press Fluid paper. Attached are work in progress photos.
Eastern Towhee for today, again new bird for me. Never seen and painted before. But it was fun painting this guy. Added some leaves and berries to create some interest in the composition.
This one is dedicated to my parents, it’s there 33 rd marriage anniversary. Three years back when they just completed 30 th One, that day my dad messaged me “30 Complete” along with a photograph of beautifully arranged flowers in front of God and Goddess (in Marathi देव्हारा)( a family shrine).
In Hindu culture on any given occasion we follow the ritual of Puja (पुजा) (worship) ( is a worship ritual performed in the morning by Hindus to offer devotional homage and prayer to one or more deities, to host and honour a guest, or to spiritually celebrate an event.)
I still remember that day. That year after three months my Dad passed away. My parents had always seemed to be happy with each other. They were an ideal couple, made for each other. We siblings never seen them fighting Or not even arguing on any matter. My dad used to take care of my mom like nothing in the world. She was his entire world along with us. As mom was very emotional and used to take too much tension. Dad knew her very well and he used take care of every single situation that it never affected her. He took care of her at the very last moment Of his life. It was so unfortunate that he passed away from severe heart attack.
But after his death, our mom is playing his role. Now she has became strong. She gives us strength. We miss you dad! Happy Anniversary to both of you!
Half way through the 100 days of bird painting challenge! Yay 😁
Oh yes! Penguins are birds. I was wondering what bird to paint then after looking for many references I end up with penguins. But then I was not sure whether it’s fall under birds category. While I was googling it, many people have had the similar question and google says yes Penguins are a group of aquatic flightless birds. 😁
Anyways I will posting another video of Birds painted till now on Instagram. You can view them on @artbysnehal.
Thank you for stopping by. Stay tuned to further 50 birds paintings.
