Picture for my Daughter

Hello all! I'm starting my post for Sunday Sketches early, since we will be on the road to my daughter's tomorrow. I'm taking her this painting:
If you remember the painting I was making for my husbands birthday, this one looks a lot like it. He liked it with just the blue background and branch, so it's hanging up in our kitchen! I really wanted to put birds on it, so I made this painting as a gift for Tori! I worked a little more on my oil painting too!
I'll be heading over to Alexandra's blog to see what the other wonderful artists have been creating this week! I hope you'll join me on Sunday! Have a great week!

I love the heavy sky in the bottom one. Brooding.

I keep wanting to paint birds lately. I've been collecting lots of pictures but not actually made a start!

What a sweet birdie family! The oil painting is coming along nicely, too. Aren't oils wonderful? If you continue to love them you might want to try the Winsor & Newton water miscable oils. They dry much faster and you can clean up with water instead of turp. Some other brands have them now, too, but I've only tried the W&N.

Enjoy your painting! It's fun to give away creations, isn't it? I bet your family will cherish these bits of yourself.
