"Love Birds"

We're all a little weird, and life's a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. 

-Dr. Seuss

I’m inspired by the fact that these birds represent love and companionship.  I've learned a great deal about these birds by reading an article entitled, “The 14 Fun Facts about Lovebirds”. The scientific name for these birds is Agapornis.  Their life span is 12-15 years and they mate for life.

Below is the fist stage of the painting. I’ve painted much of the background and the drawing of the birds.

This is not the best picture.  I had to use my old cell phone, however, you can see I have laid out the colors and the painting is coming together. 

I’m happy with the outcome of the finished painting.

I was going for a very colorful, fun loving piece. I hope this painting makes you smile and if you are in love maybe this painting makes you think about him or her. If you’re single (like myself) hopefully its inspiring and gives you hope for the future. :)
