Look who's been visiting~

This feathered friend has been coming to our backyard deck
...to greet us almost every morning ~so cute isn't it?
(and not timid/afraid of us at all...cheeky little fellow!)
anywayyy...
recently I discovered these amazing 'Bird Paintings' by Maurizio Bongiovanni
~take a look at his amazing works :
.
...Such Visual Delights!
~certainly a fine balance between realism and abstraction.

This artwork is fantatic. It has me double glancing.:)

Michael Rivers said...

Very interesting pics!!

Jan said...

First thought... what an absolutely beautiful colour.
Since you didn't say what type of birdy this is LNM I scooted over to whatbird.com & their wizard (based on location, size & colour) has come up with Purple Martin.
That could be totally wrong of course ... maybe you can you confirm.
The artwork I'm not so enamoured with but it's interesting (just like your blog in fact)

Bongiovanni's art is gorgeous but wouldn't want to take in a show after too much Scotch. Your wee visitor is such a beautiful shade of blue, I'm thinking your pup thinks just the same!
I have to apologize for being such a slacking blogger. I've missed coming bye & I'm sorry for that. Wishing you a good rest of the week my dear. xx

Meg said...

Aww, your birdy visitor is so cute! And those bird pictures are very strange.

I don't like birds- they freak me out- I am always fighting against pigeons in our yard- so gross.

I do like the dripping art birds though- those are very cool.

Jan,
errr...not sure either, must find out from the birdologist! Let's call it the 'Bluebird' for now!

Ren,
Oi! Did you watch Hitchcock's The Birds as a child?

~Thank you everyone!

He's adorable Lenore! Bluebirds are usally very bold aren't they... they know they're gorgeous, who'd hurt that beauty? Also, I love Maurizio Bongiovanni's work.

Your early morning visitor is such a gorgeous shade of blue! It's amazing that he's not afraid. Savor those special moments; they're quite a rarity.

hopeyt said...

What a bold visitor you had! I love birds because they can be so quirky and curious.

I really like the artist, too, especially the hummingbird, in the greens and pinks!
