bluebird perched in a teal green background

17 Aug

I listed another one of my cute birds from the framed feathers series on my etsy shop this morning. This proud male bluebird sits perched on a delicately curving brown branch. A nice wash of teal green with slight blue specks, covers the background. It has been sealed with a gloss varnish and mounted in a found, black, wooden frame. Want to know a little bit more about Bluebirds? Living in grasslands, these gorgeous thrushes love to eat an assorted diet of fruit, seed, worms and bugs. These bright blue male birds have a red chest & yet are the same size as their female counterpart. During courtship the male sings, dances and offers gifts at the ladies nest; what a gentleman! I am posting my framed feathers work on my etsy shop & my blog, in conjunction with a little giveaway I’m doing: Win an AWESOME bird themed mail art package or one of three 25%OFF coupons for my store!!! Get entered to win simply by commenting on this or any other the other framed feathers posts. More details and others ways to win HERE.

    Bluebirds are one of my favorites. We are usually lucky, and get at least 1 pair that will nest in one of our bluebird boxes each year. I also did a bluebird drawing some time ago, but you might say it’s a MUCH looser interpretation. :D

    This is a really beautiful piece! You have a great way with birds-they almost quiver-there is something very alive in your depictions of them. I think, perhaps, it’s all the love you have for them, coming through.
