Living Room Pt 2

My Grackle


As you may have read in my first Living Room post, I am in the process of redecorating my living room. I am almost done but still have to paint the trim. I painted this Grackle on the wall in the corner above my sectional couch. My husband has 4 bird feeders he fills daily. It is hard not to become a bird lover since we get soo many bird visitors. The Grackles have always been my favorite. When seen up close they are very colorful and shimmery. And I love that they also look just a little spooky with their large yellowish white eyes and dark pupils.

Heidi, you are very talented! Do you paint freehand, or do you use aids? I couldn't do this ever, even with assistance.
Thanks for sharing! Heidi

That's beautiful, it is quite spooky as you've put it. Looks very real too. I have trouble deciding on a wall colour, can't imagine having your type of talent!
