#21 art christmas calendar: The progress

Day 21 is a work in progress. I closed my eyes @franniefannyart chose the colours. Then I got inspired and a flamingo came to life. Then I went ahead and ruined it all. Got ”mad” and went away. Sat on the floor a bit with my cat. Got up again, took my new favourite brush and went at it again. Don’t know if I’m done with the painting. It’s a matter of progress and communicating with this piece. We’ll see...

Like yesterday when I was goind to bed and I just had to look at the brushes. All of a sudden I was painting instead of sleeping! (Kind of love that though)

#13 art christmas calendar: Bird with less chaos

Another bird! Love to paint them, I mean I really put so much love and joy into painting and the birds I've been painting lately are amazing in my eyes (and brush). In this painting I wanted to go with a less chaotic background, still portraying the bird in motion like if it's playing in a puddle. What do you think?
