Big-Eyed Bird

If you've gone to the Red Elephant Pizza Cafe, you have no doubt noticed their eccentric artwork.

It's all done by a man named Cornbread. One painting in particular caught my eye the few times I visited Red Elephant.

I decided I wanted that painting. Even though I've never ever painted before, I tried to duplicate the bird. It's pitiful.

I just about die laughing every time I walk past it. Between his huge eye and his massive gut, there's no way that poor bird could really stay in flight. The best part about this is its size.

This bird takes up a good chunk of the wall. It even looks large behind my beast of a dog.

I'm not leaving this on our wall forever; I'll eventually find something classier. But until then, I'll get a good kick out of seeing this creature loom over us.


  1. Would LOVE it if you would link this project up at my turquoise lovin' party going on right now!!

  2. Why put it away? Especially if it makes u smile. I personally like your bird, ok, one cannot see thedetails on the photo, but on the phtoto it looks interesting. Paint the wall a color and leave the pic there and smile. Use a contrasting color. U can test the look before by placing the picture on some fabric, but use a large piece and seeing if the color is satysfying for your eyes and iiner wellbeing. Thank u for sharing

  3. I think it turned out great! So cute- (and your dog is awesome btw). I'd love it if you'd stop by my blog and check out the giveaway I'm having for a Dremel Saw max!
