Two Turtle Doves – 12 Days of Christmas

A Painting of Two Turtle Doves.

“Two Turtle Doves” is a 5″x7″ acrylic painting on canvas board and the painting for Day #2.   It is the second painting of a series I have started celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas by releasing a new painting each of the first 12 days of December!
Ready for some fun facts?
  • Did you know that their are over 300 different types of doves and pigeons?
  • Dove and pigeon are terms that are used interchangeably though doves more often refer to the smaller species while pigeons refer to larger ones.
  • Turtle Doves have been seeing declining numbers and are currently on the watch list for birds.
  • Turtle Doves make a purring coo sound.

Looking to Deck the Halls?

In case it is not exciting enough that I will be releasing a painting a day for the next 10 more days, I also am listing them on my new Etsy shop!  So that means that you have the possibility of being able to add this beautiful painting (or the others) to your collection or gift it to a special someone for Christmas.   Maybe you want the whole one of a kind series to deck your halls for the holiday?  You’ll have to be the first click the buy button on Etsy.   And as my gift to you, free shipping within the US (more details on the site). 
Be sure to like me on Facebook (follow me on Twitter) so you can see when the new one goes up and follow along in the fun!
