This is gorgeous, I love the colours. I had two pet budgies just like those, when I was a little girl, my brother left the door to their cage open and they flew away, even though I missed them I was quite pleased thinking how exhilirated they must have felt to launch themselves into the sky and fly away. I have never kept pet birds since, I would feel bad cooping them up and depriving them of flight.
Your Budgies are just amazing! I'm sitting on my computer with Lola the native australian budgie whistling away next to me. Her friends Max, Jasper, Ed and Oscar are all blue/purple and white budgies whilst she is green and yellow. We love parakeets here! I would love to have one of your works on my wall and hope that your budgies end up in your etsy store. Much love for your calendar backgrounds too. From Rach in Australia!
Geninne, son muy bonitos! Y puedo preguntarte por el pequeño almohadon que se ve arriba a la derecha en la primera foto? Es una poesia bordada? Me parece una idea PRECIOSA! También lo has hecho tú? Yo soy negada con las agujas, se me da fatal, no tengo paciencia. Un saludo grande!
Oooh, parakeets are such sweet little birds. When I was a kid, we had one that looked a lot like the bird on the left. Sadly I went away for the weekend and one of the neighbor kids came in the house and left the cage open. Our kitty had a delightful meal. Eeep!
Ironic but just last week, as I was browsing through some vintage bird illustrations on NYPL site, I thought of you and said to myself "I wonder why Genine hasn't painted some of these colorful birds yet". They would be done justice with your artistic hands. Here they are! Hoping to see more colorful ones. PS: I love tanagers for their brilliant colors.
I had one for 9 years we all loved. He had a turquoise breast and white wings. We named him Snowflake. He could say 20 different words or sentences. He accompanied me all over the house, pulling the pins out of the quilts, walking to the edge and dropping them to the ground, fighting with the sewing machine needle (this always frightened me) sitting on my shoulder saying things like "I Love you, Je Tem, Jag alskar dig, come here, here kitty, kitty, You are so sweet, give me a kiss" with a kissing sound after and many more. I miss him. The one on the left reminds me so much of him. Thanks for this wonderful painting. I wish I could own it. ~a
Yo también amo los periquitos, en casa de mi mamá teniamos muchos muchos se lograban reproducir y era hermoso verlos desde bebes...dan vida a los hogares aunque es un poco triste tenerlos en jaula...mejor en libertad, saludos me encanta tu blog!
