  • Bird Themed Artwork for the Home

    A bird is known by its feathers.

    Maybe it's their symbol of freedom, or maybe it's their feathers or song - something makes us love birds. Birds have long been a favorite in modern and classic home decor. While you can find textiles, ceramics, accessories galore filled with birds, bird themed artwork for the home is an added touch that can take your room in the modern, classic, or even rustic direction that is uniquely your style. Silhouettes, realistic depictions, and abstract interpretations of birds all have their place in contemporary bird themed artwork for the home.

    GreenBox Art + Culture is drawn to artwork full of color and life. We find works that serve as starting points for your entire room's decor and color palette, offering the perfect focal point for your wall. See a piece of artwork that speaks to you, then your room will fall into place around it. Birds have proven to be a popular theme in our current contemporary art choices. We continuously find images we love with birds as the subject, and there's no expected decline in this fascination.

    We've rounded up a sampling of our bird themed artwork for the home to give you some direction based on style. First, we've gathered some of our more whimsical art featuring birds that are sure to bring a smile to your face. One - Anna Todaro's "Bluebird" features and angelic creature with a soft color palette. Two - Linda Ketelhut's "Vintage Birdhouse" would go perfectly in a vintage, eclectic room. Three - Angela Donato's "Love Bird Pennant"  brings a feminine touch to its surroundings. Four - Shelly Kennedy's "Welcome to Our Nest" will be right at home on your walls, making guests feel more than welcome.

    Some of our abstract art choices featured here will bring color and a little wildness to your walls. One - Alberto Cerriteno's "Chattering" has a neutral color palette, with a funky collection of patterned birds. Two - Carter Carpin's "Patchwork Bird" is a vibrant kaleidoscope of colors that will energize your walls. Three - Jenny Kostecki-Shaw's "Red Birdcages" features colorful birds that will instantly boost the uniqueness of your room's design. Four - Flora Bowley and Jennifer Mercede's "Stalk" is filled with passionate brushstrokes in a current color palette of magenta and blue.

    Our featured bird modern art is composed of more realistic and stylized birds. One - Meg Hunt's "Terrarium Pals" is a graphic delight in a very contemporary color combination. Two - Eleanor Grosch's "Paisley Pheasant" is a mid-century modern piece with a folk art twist. Three - Flora Bowley's "Pretty in Pink" perfectly represents Flora's unique style of intuitive painting with a fresh pink and bold black background. Four - The Mincing Mockingbird's "Bullfinch" is one of many detailed, yet simplistic bird art pieces that, when grouped together, create a feature wall that is full of life and a touch of cheekiness.

    See what we mean? There's bird themed artwork for the home no matter what your taste, and this is just the beginning! We've got flocks of bird art, and we're adding new pieces all the time.

  • Robert Kennedy

    It’s time to kick off your shoes, grab a fishing pole, take a walk past the old Horse Ranch, and venture down to the water’s edge to watch the Sailboats pass by. We’re traveling from the shores of New England and across America to the beaches on the west coast – all through the art of Robert, a.k.a. “Bob”, Kennedy. Bob is this month’s featured artist and we had him answer some questions to rekindle a time that was simple, peaceful, and serene. Here’s what he had to say:

    GreenBox: How would you describe your style in 3 words?

    Robert "Bob" Kennedy: Color - pattern - strength

    GB: How long does it typically take you to create a piece, or does it usually vary?

    BOB:  It does vary and it usually depends on the size of the piece. I have some pieces that have taking up to a year to finish. I work on them a little bit, put them away, and then come back when I’m ready.

    GB: Do you generally use the same color pallet or do you vary your choices?

    BOB:  I do. I start with earth colors and then add cadmium red, crimson, red, yellow, and blue. Most times I end up sculpting the colors because I use a lot of paint.

    GB:  Your “Road Through Town” piece is very warm and captures a small town feel. Is this a place you grew up in?

    BOB:  I paint everything from memory and a sketch book. A lot of these are real places. Also, my studio faces a nice landscape that I use for inspiration.

    GB: Name one emotion you would like people to feel from viewing your art.

    BOB:  Peaceful – I don’t want to challenge the viewer.

    GB:  Your nautical theme pops up a lot in your art in pieces like “Lobster Boats,” “The Wharf,” and “Tied Up For The Night” – can you explain the meaning there?

    BOB:  When I was a young boy I used to work as a commercial fisherman and some of them are places that I used to work like “Sunday Morning at the Dock”. Others are a combination of east and west coast locations.

    GB:  If you weren’t an artist, what profession would you chose?

    BOB: I would be helping people somehow or I would be a writer. I’d like to work on short stories or a play but painting is more pleasing to do than writing.

    GB:  How has your style changed over time or has it not changed at all?

    BOB: I started with oil paints but was allergic to them so I switched to acrylic. My style hasn’t changed too much but I do use softer edges now.

    GB:  Lastly, do you have any words of wisdom for us about art?

    BOB:  I’m a big fan of art and how it can help people. I think it’s a great outlet for people. They’re able to sit down and work out emotions and life experiences. I think art benefits people in a lot of ways.
