Are they more trouble than they are worth - discuss.

So the request was a painting of Oyster Catchers.


"Why have they only got one leg?"

They are all asleep, thats what birds do, tuck the other leg up to keep warn."

"I dont think the people who look at the painting would know that."

Just waiting for, "Why has the one on the left got an udder?"

"Why have 2 of them not got beaks and 2 of them no eyes?"

Only joking!

Love from Mum

Mum - I had just thought oh god they havent all got beaks. But now accepted,
"Much Better. They look more alive."
No just awake.....When they were not.

For what it's worth, I think it's a fab painting, you've captured their restful poses perfectly!
