Bird House

"Bird House"
6" x 6"
Oil on canvas panel
On a walk through my neighborhood in search of blossoms of any kind, I came across this darling little bird house; a recent addition to someone's back patio.  The arch of the doorway is a curved branch cut in half. I loved the log fence in the front, too. But that first step is a long way from the opening!  Purely decorative, I assume. 

I like how this painting turned out. I started it and put it down.  Too brown.  Not my favorite palette.  But once I put black around it the house came to life.  It floated until I put a post under it too.  The actual one hung.  

Thanks for flying on over today.
