April Bird Species of the Month: Orange Breasted Green Pigeon

Today's bird is the Orange Breasted Green Pigeon.  I'm normally all about the small, North-American song bird.  But hey, everyone loves a nice Asian pigeon, right?

Although I couldn't find out that much about the behavior of these birds, I was amazed out how many beautiful species of pigeons were out there.  I think we all think of the normal, gray pigeon.  But there were pigeons in all colors of the rainbow.

Here is one of my paintings I did of the green pigeon.  I added some fabric details as well:

I've also been having fun playing with the different orange and greens in my jewelry.  It all started with this necklace I made for the Iron Craft Challenge and has not stopped since :)

  1. You are so talented!

    Jenny, thank you for your comment on my blog. I also struggle with time management. I often wonder how I am supposed to create and do the social media stuff at the same time!

  2. I love birds! And I have never seen a green pigeon before. Your artwork and jewelry are so spunky and fun. Found you via EBT. Have a happy weekend!

  3. The oranges and greens look great together! I love how you used the colors of the bird to inspire your jewelry! Beautiful painting. :-D

  4. Orange and green is so pretty together and you make them look even better. The necklace is great and I love your painting of the bird. Beautiful artwork.

  5. What a pretty bird! I had no idea that were other kinds of pigeons.
    And your green and orange color combo from it looks great!

  6. Love that necklace! Gorgeous colors.

  7. We have some of that same vine print fabric in our stash! It's so gorgeous, I can't wait to make an apron with it.


Thanks for your comments! I love hearing from my readers :)
