I have had these next two prints for at least two years or longer. They are from an artist Diana Sudyka who’s business name is Tiny Aviary. Click here for the link. She lives in the Chicago area and all her paintings include a natural element. I am drawn to all the activity that is happening in these two pictures. This first one was based off a children’s book illustration. I love the two kids with the rosy cheeks. I also really liked the jack-in-the-pulpit. It is called “The Wonders of Nature”.
The next one is called “The Backpack”. The owner left the backpack and the birds are unpacking it and putting the contents in the tree. There are boots, pots and pans, binoculars and a compass to name a few items. It reminded me of the childrens book “Caps for Sale” when the salesman went to sleep with all his caps on his head. The monkeys came along and took his caps and hung them in the tree.
We then hung the ornate refurbished frame I found in an antique store. ” Happy Birds” mixed media painting was hung inside it. I really love this look.
It was hung in the landing of the stairway.
It picks up the colors in the grandmothers flower garden quilt.
They were hung on the Great Room wall beside a drawing I did in Art Class.
The drawing was based on a project called the faces of God. We had to make it our interpretation and I divided mine into four areas with rain and a rainbow, thunderstorm, sunshine and snow. I included young pictures of my boys and nature like irises, sunflowers, trees. One of my favorite drawings from school. Thanks so much for checking in.
