Birds of a Feather: Paired Paintings

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m digging painting paired pieces right now. This holiday, I wanted to make my grandparents a different painting each but make the paintings complement each other.

My grandmother is a skilled watercolorist. Since she has been painting less these days, she handed me down a shoebox’s worth of her paints. I used many of those in these paintings from mayan blue to quinacridone gold.

I went for a bird theme to go with their house. A floral branch is more my grandmother’s taste and the rock is a nod to my grandfather’s participation in geology.
