Kirsten Bailey: Art


Nurture Exhibition

Breakfast for Early Birds - original watercolour painting by Kirsten Bailey

Breakfast for Early Birds

It’s been a while since I’ve been involved in an exhibition, and I’m excited to have 3 of my paintings in the Art & Design Precinct’s Nurture exhibition beginning this Friday.  With my first Mother’s Day coming up, it is the perfect theme for me.

Opening night is this Friday 2nd May, and the exhibition continues through until May 14.

The three paintings I chose to include all have themes of motherhood.

Breakfast for Early Birds features a mother bird feeding her babies as they nest in a tree, silhouetted before a clear dawn sky.

Hope Within

Hope Within was painted when I was pregnant, and represents the joy and hope of an expectant mother

Little Family is a brand new painting, very similar to the one I created for Xander’s nursery.  The two larger trees represent the mother and father, while the smaller tree represents the child.  The blue and yellow of the parents’ trees combine to make the green of the child’s.  Each of the parent trees features a green heart, to represent their love for their child.
