I love birds. I may or may not have an excessive number of backyard bird feeders and bird houses on my property. I also love to paint birds. I recently painted a bird for fun and put it on a greeting card to send to friends. (One can always use a good songbird greeting card). I liked it so well, I decided to make several more. And since I’m going to paint them anyway, I thought, I may as well paint birds that other people like too. So I threw out a call for commissioned requests—understanding that they would buy the original and I would make greeting cards from the image.
Here are three of the commissioned bird watercolor paintings that I will make into greeting card designs. I’m rather fond of them.
