Ceramic Vases

Something new for me. One of my collectors wanted a set of urns showing winter and early spring as a circle of life theme. They are also into birding so I did a blue jay for winter and a goldfinch for spring on the lids. Painting on these worked out well for me and it was fun once I got the hang of it. So now I am thinking of trying a few more of course.

Both of these are in oils. The urns are about 14 inches tall.
