  3. Both beautiful but I just love this blue bird! I don't know what it is, maybe the calm gaze or the lovely color combination. Certainly birds have plenty to say. Fish too, I'm sure, but they are somewhat harder to hear. ;)

  4. Love your bird - looks like a parrot to me! And the fish colours are gorgeous. In case you didn't get to see my comment on the translation on my blog - many thanks - I really appreciate your input!

  8. Thank you for the encouraging comments. I painted the bird from a photograph of a crow for my translation of an Ainu folk tale. Indigo is the color I usually use to represent black, but in this case I guess it confused the identity of the bird. Sorry about that.

    The goldfish is a very early etegami of mine that I painted for a Russian "communications technology" exhibit--the first time I ever sent an etegami overseas. It became the first of several etegami on the same theme.

  10. OOOOOOOOOHHHHHH!!! I especially love the fish! It is beautifully exquisitely rendered. Those birds sure are vocal. I had a phone conversation with an analyst working from home one day and she had one of these birds and boy was he so noisy and talkative! Hahah!
