Botanicals, Birds and a few of my favorite things…

I have always loved botanicals, It amazes me at the detail in the way the flowers and plants are captured. I also like the old world plates of Birds and how both of these are numbered, titled and collected into sketch books. Vintage oil paintings and the crackle of the canvas when visiting art museums always capture my eye. I thought it would be fun to number these paintings. My Hope in painting them oversized was a combination of the old world look with a modern twist. My love of flowers, nature and birds makes my heart happy when I paint them.
