Bird Paintings

I’ve been revisiting my kindergarten habits and drawing and painting birds. Here are some of the results. Funny how 40 years of abstract and non-objective painting changes your perspective…. All of these are birds I have photographed in my yard on on my travels. You can buy these on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/jamiedowns 

 

Here are the large  and medium size works on canvas, mylar and paper so far:
