A Blue Bird

Hi there! It’s so hot and humid in Japan. I hate summer, but we have to deal with it. I painted a blue bird because the color blue makes us feel cool. Actually, I painted this plate for my friend. I hope the blue bird brings happiness to her! ( In Japan we have a saying like blue birds are symbol of happiness.)

While I was painting the blue bird, I could feel cooler a little bit. It was fun to paint the bird. He seems to be a baby bird, doesn’t he?  I hope the butterfly is his friend, and not his food, lol.

The hot and humid weather makes me tired and paint slower. I will update my art blog in two weeks!

Have a lovely week or weekend!

    • Hi, Yukari-san!

      Thank you as always for the comment! Nah, actually I was the lucky one. My friend gave me her mom’s occupied Japan china. That’s the reason I painted it for her. I didn’t mention that because there are so many crazy people online. I don’t want to get unpleasant gifts from unknown people, lol.
