Spring Bluebird in acrylics

I love how this one is perched on the branch.  When I finished the painting, I decided to add the flowers as there was a bit too blue and flowers add a pop of colour against the background.


Spring Bluebird measures 6 x 4 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth Paper.
