JEANNE ILLENYE - HONEYMOONERS IN CRYSTAL PALACE

Honeymooners in Crystal Palace
12x12 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
You’ll no doubt recall some other bird portraits I’ve painted, all of which are for one client who delights in their exquisite plumage, beautiful song and sweet, or sometimes in the case of her Parrots, entertaining dispositions -- seems her girls are always up to something! However, these two darling little Zebra Finches have such sweet dispositions which I really tried to capture in this intricate portrait of the happy couple nestling together in an exquisite crystal chandelier. The whimsical title came to me while I painted, as is often the case.
