When discussing their favorite winter paintings, lovers of wildlife immediately talk about about bright, memorable images of common winter birds. In my native country of Russia, this bird is the charming bullfinch. The sight of these pretty and touching feathered friends invariably evokes feelings of sympathy and sincere joy. Uninvited visitors of the ash trees and bold neighbors in city parks and squares – to catch sight of these colorful bullfinches is a fortunate experience and very pleasant surprise, not only for a child but for an adult as well. Its exceptional visual appear and cheerful nature has made the bullfinch one of the favorite heroes of contemporary artists.
“Bullfinch eating winter berries” is an uplifting and attractive example of winter artwork. This handmade wall art features a winter’s morning where a handsome bullfinch, with his bright red breast, grey wing, little black cap, and long tail, is perched on the snowy branch of an ash tree and enjoying his breakfast. Wintery shades of blue make up the soft backdrop of the image and the light-lilac colored tree branches in the background are reminiscent of frosty patterns on window glass. Falling snow also provides the forest landscape with a dream-like appearance. The bright red and orange shades of the winter fruit and bird’s breast will draw your eyes to this painting and prompt a closer examination of the texture provided by the wool fibers.
