Lovebirds

$100 & $10 S&H

These two little lovebirds were are special to me because they were a gift from a good friend.  I got an idea from a wonderful painter, Dreama Tolle Perry, to write a message underneath the painting - kind of a wish, for whoever ends up with the painting.  Something good.  Here's my wish, underneath this painting:
Underneath this painting is my wish for you of Joy.
And the blue in the foreground is my *favorite* Horizon Blue.

I went to the Dog Show this past weekend, so you can be sure there are some adorable pup paintings coming!
And... for years I thought I had a link to Suzanne Berry on my blog list.  She's amazing... and she and I both got Pugs around the same time, AND we're both married to guys named Tim.  We are also alike in that we are neat-freaks and completely organized (not!).  Check her out.

  1. Kelley,
    These are adorable love birds. You painted them so well- very glazey and love the sheen on them. Their little beaks are so fragile looking! Horizon Blue is a favorite also, looks great here.
    Wonderful idea to write a special message under the painting. Good Karma for sure:)

  8. Love the way you've captured the hardness and gloss of the ceramic with such loose strokes. That could not have been easy! Love your snow people in the 2 posts below too!

  15. Kelley This is wonderful. ANd brave! Me and whites don't mix!
    It's funny, but I was JUST telling matt about that artist and her message. I was also hinting strongly that I desperately want one of her 6 x 6 paintings for Christmas. Don't think it's in the budget, or that he got the hint. I think it's awesome to write a little message under your paintings. And Joy seems appropriate!
