This year’s birthday present for my best friend (and her fiancé). It’s meant to fill some blank space on their living room walls, and I can’t wait to see it there! The magpies have some personal, symbolic meaning, but they’re also just really pretty birds.

Drawing ink on Fabriano hot pressed satinated paper.

Today’s music suggestion: Small of Two Pieces from Xenogears (www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7D0U_…). Neither of them has ever played the game as far as I know but the song keeps reminding me of them, so here we go.

Cute birds sitting in a heart-shape surrounded by tiny white flowers sounds a guarantee for kitsch; but you really managed to avoid it. Truly impressive:o (Eek)  Besides I really like what you have done with the leaves, all from different angles and variously twisted. Lovely how the light shines through them from behind. Clap

Was für ein wunderbares persönliches Geschenk, da haben sie sich bestimmt sehr gefreut :) Ist das ein Herz im Holz?

Jepp, ist ein kitschiges Herz :D.
Ich habe gehört, mittlerweile haben die beiden auch einen Rahmen gekauft. Ich bin gespannt, das Bild dann an der Wohnzimmerwand zu sehen :,).

Thank you! Well, I did a few more bird pieces, and my colouring style hasn’t changed significantly in recent years, either – only improved ;). I also did more than piece in greens…

Very pretty. I love how you incorporated an actual heart shape without making it cheesy! And your magpies are gorgeous.

Thank you, that makes me so happy! I was actually waiting for any "a heart-shape? That’s cheesy" comments form the giftees and/or the birthday party participants, but nobody dared to say it :D. I also think that this level of cheesiness is totally fine.

It's a very tasteful and elegant level of cheesy, and thus, just perfect.
