Painted Bird Ceramic

Okay, so I finally admit it...
a secret love...
Painting ceramics!!!
I know they are typically abit 'cheesy'
and I always feel weird about painting something someone else made
But what can I say, it's a long-time love my mom turned me onto when I was a kid
and I recently indulged in this secret hobby to paint this...


...I think it took me about 8 or 9 hours straight but I think it was worth it.
I gave it to my mom.

See you soon and thanks oodles for hopping in for a look-see.

What a fun hobby to share with your Mom. The form may not be yours, but the painting is definitely all you!

This is beautiful! When I was young, my grandmother had her own ceramics shop and I remember watching her pull things out of the kiln and then turning little pieces over to me to paint. They are still some of my favorite treasures!

I love the warm colours in this. Normally painting ceramics isn't considered "art"...but when you an amazing job like you do...I have to disagree.
