"Sun Bird" & "Fire Bird"

Earlier this evening, the artist and her husband dropped off the two paintings she no longer had room for in her studio, and that she had decided to make me a present of. Now that they're here, I just can't believe how truly generous she has been, and I don't know that I can ever repay her. I promised enigmaticblues that there'd be pictures, so without further ado...

The two side by side. This is how they will be mounted on the wall of my living room...once I've found and installed the picture rail system I've got in mind. They're too big and heavy to be suspended from a nail wacked into the wall.

This one's called 'Sun Bird'

This one's called 'Fire Bird'

In case you're wondering: they're done in a mixed technique of pastels (crayons) and acrylic (paint).

How compelling! The abstract rendering offers different things to see on multiple viewings. I think these will grow for you over time.

Picture rail system, for the win!

Already, I can't image my home without these paintings, and I certainly can't see myself tiring of them any time soon.

I like the Sun Bird. It looks rather sad. :'(

Do you think so? 'cause I think quite the opposite! The whole picture's got a very optimistic feel to it, I think.

I thought it had a sad, droopy eye.

Well, yeah, now that come to mention it...and if that swirly bit is actually its eye...

Wow! Those are beautiful.

Thank you. I think they're very expressive. And I can't believe they're mine now.

Wow. Those are very, very cool. You are indeed a lucky woman.

Beautiful - what a wonderful gift - and what a lovely link to Peronne as well.

what a lovely link to Peronne

Indeed. It's a tenuous link, but a link nonetheless. And apart from that, I just really like them. They're so colourful! I'm absolutely thrilled with this gift.
