Fowl with Pearls

Michael Sowa is a German bred artist who incorporates animals into his paintings and illustrations.  The art is whimsical but most importantly makes me smile.  The minute I saw "Fowl with Pearls" I knew it would be mine.  I don't like mass produced pieces and wanted something really original that I would enjoy looking at every day. 

The wall behind my couch is big and beige.  With such an open floor plan I want to keep the neutral paint color.  So I am thinking of doing a gallery wall.  I love the idea of mixing different pieces together to make a really big impact.  This wall can handle it.

Before I had a large french bistro style picture from Kirklands.  At one time I loved it.  I still love the frame. 

Here is my bird put into this frame and turned around.

So here she is in all her glory!  She makes me smile.  Hopefully I can find more pieces that make me just as happy
