Re: First Mural and Two Birds

Kathie the mural looks great and I bet your grandson loves it.

I keep wating for the sound from the gull. Good job.

The "blue bird" is well painted also, but are you sure it is a blue bird? The beak looks wrong for a Eastern Bluebird, more like a hawk or kestrel.

Minutes Later:
I just read where you didn't know what kind of bird it is. Look up a Kestrel... they are small birds... and dangerous to their prey.

Re: First Mural and Two Birds

Michelle, Thank you very much! Little Mathew does love it, he's wild about Buzz and Woody everything now!!
Ken, Thank you!
Patti, Thank you, Not sure about the bluebird, I think it might be called a merlin from what the lady who took the photo thinks it might be.. not sure, I just know he's blue! She did say he's cute but dangerous, guess I gota look it up some. Thanks for looking, maybe it is a kestrel! Appreciate it.
I found a site and it is a Merlin, a type of a falcon..

The Toy Story Mural is great. Love cartooning. That might not be a real word but I do love cartooning and you did great.

Re: First Mural and Two Birds

Alas, you can't really hire yourself out to paint such murals for others, at lesst not with this subject. Disney, you know. They are awfully particular about how uses their characters. You're not being paid now, so it's OK, I guess, but they are really aggressive in going after anyone even remotely suspected of using their material.

For what you did and why, it's wonderful.

Re: First Mural and Two Birds

Nice to see you back Kathie, your mural looks adorable and I'll bet he loves it. I like the birds too, how about "Eyeing You" and the other Squawking! No rest for you - even on vacation you paint! (;-))
