457: painting birds and stones

I have been painting like crazy, which is awesome because it is one of my favorite things to do.

I will be doing some more of the beachy Cap-Cod inspired stuff for galleries, but for this week I am just playing and going with whatever comes out.

I am a little bit escared to say this out loud, but I am planning to list these on etsy when they are done.

yeah, birds and stone shapes. what can i say? that's what's coming through!

sometimes with melty flowers:

 

sometimes with brainwaves:

but sometimes still houses show up:

and lots of layers and scratchiness, of course:

and

every

now

and

then...

a unicorn:

I  am hoping to finish them up this weekend and list them next week. Will keep you posted!

xoxo

I'd love to get an idea of how big these are. Can you photograph them next to something that shows the scale? I suppose you could list their size, but I am more of a visual person. ;-)

Great work!

Love! These! So! Much! Especially Birdy McBrainwaves there. Like an avian lama. No, not llama, lama. Ha. An avian llama would just be silly.
