Black Phoebe

“959. Black Phoebe” Oil painting by Mariko Irie

I love this little bird.

After I painted this bird and stump, my brush stopped.

I left this painting on a shelf, and had looked at the painting every day.

One early morning I was watching outside: small bits of blue sky in white clouds, morning lights were twinkling on the branches.

Then I got an idea for the background of the bird.

This back ground makes the bird warm and happy, doesn’t it?
