But I didn't stop with the Life Book assignment. I painted some more quirky birds and owls on canvas or wood.

Before I started painting the birds I had sketched a whole bunch of them on small notepaper. When Kaefer saw them she liked a certain one best. I transformed that one in a painting and gave it to her for her birthday - she turned 15 yesterday.

These birds are so much fun to paint. I love that they're not realistic; instead, my imagination can run wild. How much fun is that!!! I love it!
I'm linking this with Paint Party Friday where you can find the amazing work of so many talented artists.
Oh, in case you've wondered - my painting from last week finally got a name. I received quite some interesting and beautiful ideas on Facebook, and finally decided for Jennifer's suggestion of "Inner Beauty".
