When I was in my teen I was very interested in painting birds. For about five years, almost everyday after school and on the weekend I would go to the museum and paint birds from their collection. Most of the bird paintings I done that period were sold to staff at the museum, but I kept some I really like for myself.
After I enter Art College and discovered other arts. I some how lost interest in birds and stopped painting them all together.
Recently, I had been thinking to revisit my past love. I painted a kingfisher for the first time in many years. I wanted to compare how much my style of painting has change in all these years. The one on the right is a 40 years old painting and the one on the left is my latest, both are watercolor and about the same size, 9”x10”
