The Sparrow

I saw a cute little painting on Pinterest and I had to have it!!  It so inspired me that I got out the paints immediately to try my hand at painting my own and I LOVE IT!  It's not quite as cute as the original and I couldn't get exactly the right colours mixed, but even so my little chubby sparrow is sweet.

You can see what the original looks like by clicking HERE

He now hangs in my front entry where he can greet me every day.

I must be on a roll, the paint is just flowing these days and I barely have to direct it.  Is it just emotion that flows through us or is there another force that directs the paint brush?  I'd love to know the answer to that one...

  1. Beautiful painting! It might have not turned out to be exactly like you saw on pinterest but it has its own unique beauty. Still, there are some people who could not do it like you do. Like me! lol!

    Chubby sparrows are so cuteest!

  2. No, it's not emotion that flows but SKILL. There is no way I'd ever be able to do anything even RESEMBLING a bird, much less something that was hang-worthy. Beautiful!

  15. I love how your painting turned out! The excitement you have for that little bird shows. I think whenever an artist is excited and inspired and passionate about what he or she is painting, they put out their best work. At least that's how it is for me :)

  18. Dear Diane,

    Your sparrow is absolutely lovely, and I am so impressed you can just see a picture and paint it like that! I would love to be able to paint like you, but I think I will stick to other creative expressions... :-)

    ALl the best,
    Helena
