Remember how last week I made a “two birds, one stone” stab? Well, this week, I’m being literal with it.
Okay, um, not completely literal… I’m not killing any birds.
Just painting one!
So, I think this picture is of a seagull my sister in law snapped a shot of when we were in Alaska together… but, I could be wrong on that.
Either way, though, it’s safe to distinguish as a seagull, and any bird experts out there may feel free to discount me otherwise.
Another funny thing about this piece… well, actually, the first thing wasn’t really funny, I guess… actually, I think it kind of was, but that doesn’t matter.
I could not for the life of me come up with a decent title for this painting, so I asked my dad to just take up the naming duties for me on this one. And then he goes, “Call it… Kayne’s Nest”.
And I actually did!
And, I know this is so weird, but it always pops in my head when I paint photos of living creatures like this that were taken more than a year ago…
This bird could very well be dead by now. It’s probably dead by now.
Eh, actually, I just looked it up, and seagulls live up to 15 years in the wild. So… there’s only about a 50/50 chance that this gull is dead by now!
Morbid thoughts aside, though…
Let me know what y’all think/thought of Kanye’s Nest!
I think it’s pretty cozy.
