30 Paintings In 30 Days Challenge Day No. 21 - Eastern Bluebird by Mary Beth Brath

Eastern Bluebird by Mary Beth Brath

I have taken the challenge by Leslie Saeta to complete 30 paintings in 30 days. Each painting will be 6x6" on canvas paper. I picked a theme of birds to keep me focused. The 30 birds chosen as subject matter are all birds that I have spotted over the years. Most are common in my region.

Painting No. 21
Today's bird is the Eastern Bluebird. One time when I was plein air painting in Perry County PA, I was sitting on the ground in a field painting a landscape with a bluebird box in the scene. Two bluebirds were flying in and out of the box and happily playing. I was in heaven. Then I realized I was sitting just inches from a pile of deer pellets. So happy I did not sit in the pellets!
The paintings are available for purchase at $100 each - unframed. Shipping included. Sales tax of 6% if in the state of Pennsylvania. Contact me at
