I would love to show my bird painting: Baltimore Oriole today. I painted it from an American bird magazine. The bird is one of wild birds in America. It has very pretty orange colors. I have not seen the birds in Japan. I prefer painting American wild birds because there are lots of colorful birds: Blue Joy, Cardinal, Baltimore Oriole and so on. Most of our wild birds are brown-ish. Of course, we also have some pretty wild birds like Japanese crane.
It was my first time to paint on a vase. I designed the pattern to my vase. Although I wanted to paint the bird with an American painting style, somehow, I painted it with an European painting style. I paited it with only one fire.
