Quilted Blue bird on a snow day

Birds make me Happy

Light as a feather? or soft as a birthday bird?

These bird brighten my day as much as the blue skies and fresh snow. The shadows in these photos (taken with my cell phone) create a dramatic image with the birds, showing off the shape and feathers. I can feel a story coming from the event of showing of birthday birds in the snow…..

Sunshine – Yellow Birthday Bird

Sunny the yellow bird

There is still snow out there, but the sun is shinning and the birds are chirping. This yellow bird has a quilted body making it feel as though it is even warmer in spirit. Cheerful birthday birds are light weight and pose with ease on the snow fill field behind my studio.

Blue Skies with a Blue Bird

Blue Birthday Bird

Blue is a happy colour!

We received an early snow fall in Alberta and it lasted a whole three days, finally the sun and blue skies have appeared and the whole world seems a lot brighter. Blue being the colour of the day, I thought that the birthday bird deserved a little fresh air and a modeling opportunity.

This little guy makes me laugh, funny shape and a chipper walk.

This soft and colourful flock swings from the ceiling in my dining room.

Thought that you’d like to see what I’m working on in the studio these days; birds with feet and wings.

#51 Bird a Day

#51

Bird a Day – Needing time to embellish, not forgetting the fine details. #51 will return with a new feather decor in the near future.

Starting from the basics with bold colours,  and the option to add on…..

I found an article on colour choice for business rather that personality…. love the ideas in this article.

Here, Lane used bright hot pink for the British Independent Film Festival poster. Wishing to capture attention, he combined it with tongue-in-cheek text for fun, energetic and youthful appeal.
