Hand Painted Whimsical Love Bird Tray

love bird tray
I had a custom request for a hand painted tray depicting love birds
with special words and colors chosen by my client.

I started with a plain wooden tray

My client said she brings her husband breakfast in bed every morning
and she wanted a special tray for their daily ritual.
How sweet and romantic is that?

Here I've basecoated, painted the background with diamonds and swirls
and added the birds on a branch.

She asked me to include these words on the tray,
"Good Morning Honey, guess what we get to do today?"
The answer being...we get to be together :)

I gave the bottom and sides a color paint treatment as well.

Sweet love birds....

  2. awww how sweet that saying is .. I love the tray. Hope you had a nice Christmas. Happy New Year

  3. Beautiful looking tray! Probably would make the whole breakfast in bed experience even better.


I've moved to to focus on my mosaic art. I'm no longer creating dragonflies or mermaids.
