Calm in Chaos paintings

Been a bit of a chaotic week so have been doing some calming paintings.  I always find that painting even just for half an hour is so relaxing.  We havent had Spring yet so I have been painting it instead.  Hope you all have a lovely Easter holidays and remember the true meaning of Easter..new good beginnings... 

Be sure to check out the other art at Happy Paint Party Friday...

I like both paintings, but my absolute favorite is the one with the first one. I love the contrast between the soft and peaceful bird rendering against the strong and forceful strokes in the background. Blessings!
