Denise Beverly Photography and Artworks is an updated blog for dbvisualarts. This new blog will showcase products and designs from my online stores such as Zazzle and Fine Art America as well as my fabric designs on Spoonflower and WeaveUP. I have a love of vintage images and often use properly licensed images in vintage designs.
A neighbor introduced us to the possibility of housing some
bluebirds in our yard a few years ago.
We set up the box and a feeder, ordered meal worms and waited. It did not take long at all for these
beautiful lapis blue and cinnamon colored Eastern Bluebirds to show up and many
broods later, come February, I plan to have meal worms at the ready once again.
A few days ago an artist’s group I belong to proposed a
challenge with a bluebird image. I tried
several things and nothing seemed right, but inspiration struck and within a
very short time a bluebird arrived, so to speak. Later in the morning I remembered the additional conversations of add a mustache,
and a bowler hat. It wasn't long until
Oliver, the gentleman bluebird arrived as well.
I put him on as my monitor background and my husband saw
it. He is very supportive but
quiet. I was surprised when our
conversation went something like this:
I said "well this is truly Mr. Bluebird". He said "Sir Dudley Bluebird".
And then he said "no, you can call him Oliver ( his first
name though he never uses it) he is OB
- Oliver Bluebird, I am proud to share
my name with him.
And so goes the
short story of how Oliver Bluebird got his name, I hope he brings a smile to your face and cheer of the coming Spring in your heart.
Oliver will be available on Zazzle soon but for now look for him in my Fine Art America portfolio through this link. Fine Art America
