Raggedy Sparrow Meets Cricket. “Greetings!” Chinese Brush painting plants birds animals, Almost…

top chinese painting I have always enjoyed the miniature Raggedy Birds, just merely a celebration of ink and paint and paper. Tiny. And its fun to see their gruff lil faces as they come face to face with Crickets.
I almost slipped up and gave the Cricket a European Top Hat….
Anyway, this was a cheerful practice at the days ending. And I am pleased with the colours.
This is Red Star paper bought for me by a good friend in Dallas. It is very difficult to work with if you are not Chinese trained.

    Very impressive painting. I also love the creativity of painting the cricket with a hat. Both of them looks lively and the composition of the whole painting is wonderful. :-)
