"Birds Of Pray - Apostle, Bishop, Cardinal And Jesus (Jacana) Birds"

  • Inspiration for this painting came to me one morning while I was painting in my studio. I heard a cacophony of bird sounds coming from just outside my window and looked out to see several apostle birds happily chortling to each other. Don’t know why, but I counted them and there were twelve, counted them again and yes there were definitely twelve apostle birds. Ah ha the seeds of inspiration were sown!

    I then researched and found that there were other species of birds with “religious” names. Having found Bishops and Cardinals, I wondered if “Jesus” birds existed….. I should be so lucky I thought! Well lo and behold I found the Jacana which is sometimes referred to as Jesus birds.

    I decided to create an image of these birds in a religious setting and doing my own quirky version of “The Last Supper” within a stained glass window.

    I am thrilled with and proud of this painting which I have titled, not Birds of “Prey” but “Birds Of Pray - ” Apostle, Bishop, Cardinal And Jesus (Jacana) Birds

    I sincerely hope that you enjoy viewing it as much as I enjoyed making it!
