Thanks to cutting back a little from blogging, I managed to finish my latest painting – A Pair of Puffins – that I started a couple of months ago! (Usually it takes a month per painting.)
Puffins are one of my very, v e r y favourite birds and I´ve always been – and always will be – in love with them (luckily my boyfriend doesn´t mind 😉 ).
The striking colourful beaks are partly shed off after breeding season and appear much smaller and duller in comparison. As you can see, my puffins are still in full swing 😉 They are also known to form long-time pair bonds or relationships.
If you want to know more about these fabulous birds, you could go to Wikipedia of course, or – and that´s a special recommendation 😉 – visit this wonderful blog by my friend Inese! She´s written some very beautiful blog posts about these lovely birds and made lots of terrific shots that I can´t keep from gazing at 🙂
