Whoa. Now, just to be clear, there are many, many, many other things in the impressive portfolio of American painter Meghan Howland, but these stunning bird covered portraits immediately grabbed my attention. So gorgeous, and just a tiny bit creepy. Yes, that’s right birds, you heard me… I don’t care how pretty your feathers are, I do not want you anywhere near my head. Ever. I would, however, happily put one of these paintings on my wall.

    I love the colour in these paintings butI am especially interested in your comment about birds near you head. A lot of people don’t like the idea of birds near their heads and yet I am amazed at how much artwork I come across with birds sitting on people’s heads! I can’t understand it. Does it have some traditional symbolic meaning, I wonder, or is it paying homage to a particular painter back in time? Just come across your posts and really enjoying them, thanks.

    Meghan, your artwork is so beautiful that it makes my heart hurt.
