Bird paintings and nature: The Cardinal

True love

Cardinals are not only wonderful parents. They are also very devoted mates as well. In our yard we have a beautiful couple that daily displays their love, commitment and affection for each other.

I couldn't resist to capture this magical moment...a lesson and reminder from nature,
                     that true intimacy starts with the ability and desire,
                               to frequently look,
                                       deeply and lovingly
                                             into our loved one's eyes...

Bird paintings and nature: Bananaquit

Coereba Flaveola, Barika Heel, Bananaquit, Chibichibi or Suikerdiefje

are just some of the names of this tiny feathered creature that can be found in the Caribbean.

These birds, with their sunny yellow bellies, represent my youth on Curacao and the tropical life on this beautiful island. 

No worries, always being happy and enjoying the sweet things in life.
