Bird Love

Art

Anyone who knows me will not be surprised when I say how much I like birds. They appear in many of my paintings.

One of my favourite, apart from the dove, is the hoopoe. He is sometimes to be seen in southern areas of the UK but they proliferate here in Saudi Arabia. Very shy, they run between the trees scuttling from view if they sense you.

However if you have patience and sit still they come quite close.

Today’s collage is mostly water colour with just a little decorative collage because I had plenty of time. Is he sitting on a giant patterned egg? I wonder what bird of paradise would hatch from this?

Meanwhile I’m enjoying the shade of palm trees and the air con in the 43 degree heat.
