Morning Visitors

6"x8" Oil on gessoboard
$90 +s/h

This pair of Australian Rainbow Lorikeets arrive on my daughter's window ledge almost every morning for a spoonful of honey. Sometimes they get cheeky and even jump right inside!!  Last time I was on holiday there, I managed to get a their beautiful colors!!


  1. WOW, this is fantastic, would LOVE to have a couple like this to come to my window :-)) Great painting ! Wishing you a wonderful and creative 2014 .

  2. What a great painting Karen!! You've really captured them perfectly - you can feel their personalities. How lucky your daughter has them coming so close.
    We have a lot of these lorikeets in Perth now but they aren't native to Western Australia and they tend to bully out some of the local parrots. They are so pretty though that I have almost forgiven them!
    Beautiful work!
    Happy New Year!!!

  3. this is really wonderful!! i love everything about it. the color, the composition, they are gorgeous!

    and thank you for your kind words and encouragement on the 30/30. my first time! and i will push the mute button on those voices! thank you!

  4. What a perfect pair to have as morning visitors! Love the way you singled out all the best colors and shapes to focus on them!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and comments, I love reading them...they keep me inspired!
