More bird paintings by Vicki Hunt

Long tailed tit by Vicki Hunt
Goldfinch painted by Vicki Hunt
Coal tit by Vicki Hunt
I love Vicki's paintings. Her birds are beautifully observed and have just the right heft and stance to make them believable. Vicki paints with acrylics on fabric and then stitches round the bird. 
Isn't it time we turned our backs on gimmicky art - art school seems to be about finding your weird and original novelty and sticking with it - and returned to the appreciation of artists who have a natural talent for drawing and painting. I am hoping Vicki will bring more of her paintings in soon as they do see to fly out of the shop fast!
