30 Paintings in 30 Days- Day 3

"Spring Fever"       
As I look at the temperature outside, here in Minnesota (below zero AGAIN), I long for Spring, so I decided to paint a robin today. I've always loved robins.  Last year, I saw hundreds of them in early Spring, all gathered together, looking at the snow as if to say, "Am I early?"   This was a sight I've never seen before, and probably won't see again.  I again used collage papers for the feathers, just like Day One of this challenge.  I also printed off quotes about birds and robins and collaged them in the light areas.  I've always been a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, so that is why I put the line work and graphic style in the background.  It was a fun project. Again, this is 11" x 11" image and it is available for $95.


  1. Adorable Karen....It's -35 with the windchill here in Maine, I'm so ready for Spring already! :) Happy Painting!

  2. Love the way you have incorporated collage and line with your bird!

  3. Sweet painting! And it is an appropriate wish for Springtime. I love the way it all hangs together - like poetry, the title makes it all the more powerful.

  4. Wow this is a cheerful little sunshine ambassador! I love the way you have the squares in the background it makes such an interesting and original composition, a memorable piece!

  5. I just love the style and the geometric shapes!
