Once spring shows up here I love seeing songbirds returning to the garden. Blue birds signify happiness to many people. They symbolize freedom, blue skies, and carefree soaring to me. I enjoy collecting ceramic birds for home decor, drawing and coloring birds for fun and making collages with birds cut from vintage guidebooks. My collages are more about playing with color than sending a message but the birds add a light happy note to my artworks.
Here are some fun examples of bird art that I found on Etsy. Any of these would add charm to home or office decor. Click on the links to go to the Etsy shops for more information.
Aren't these charming ways to add a bird or two to your home? You'll find bird motifs everywhere once you decide to start a collection. Are you tempted?
