View Full Version : Lovebirds & one flirty Flamingo

I started teaching painting classes at a lovely gallery a few months ago. I painted these lovebirds to do as a lesson right before Valentines Day, but after it was hanging for 1 week, it sold. Yeah! so I painted another one. Hung it there, came back the next week, and that one sold too! I think I'm on to something! 8x10, acryllic

I had a lot of fun painting this guy - I call it "Flirty flamingo". 11 x14 acrylics Its now hanging in the gallery, also to use as a basis for one of my painting classes... unless someone buys it first! :crossfingers: :lol:

Gorgeous Lovebirds - I can see why they sold! And Flirty Flamingo is pretty cute too. She looks as if she fluttering those eye-lashes! Great job on both Pat! :thumbsup:

Pat, you're a natural with birds. Congratulations on sales, too! That is always the icing on the cake. The flamingo is perfect and no doubt will fly out of there as well.

I like how in your painting the Love Birds relate to each other. The branch they are sitting on even has a heart. Great colors! Love it.

Great job with both! I love the background making the birds come forward so well and the flamingo has a great expression. Congrats on the sales!

Thanks Val, Kay, Christel, Bobbymac, & Penny,
and Wes - (I'm from Cleveland (Lakewood) OH too!)

I've always loved to paint birds. As I kid my mom bought me lots of plastic bird models that I would put together & paint!

Both are totally delightful. Congrats on the sale of the lovebirds(not surprised they sold) and good luck with the flirtatious flamingo.

Congratulations on the sale. I can see why it sold, it's very sweet and really well painted, I love the colours. Great flamingo too, I like what you did with the background. :)

Both of these are beautiful!! I can see why you sold two within a short time.

Thanks for your comments, Crista, LucyLoo, Chammi, Kay, & Sheila, I appreciate them!

I was there today, doing my weekly "make & take" small painting, and one of my other "lesson" paintings sold, although not the flamingo. I felt honored to meet the lady and talk with her, she really loved it.

These are very nice and well done. I like the graphic feel to them as well.

Thanks Sam, my background is heavy on graphic design, I guess it definitely influences my style, lol.
