On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

A blackberry pie, a bowl of blackberries, and four blackbird skulls.

I got this idea from the rhyme 4 and 20 blackbirds baked in a pie...  Calling birds MAY have been a misheard lyric. Colly birds (a term for blackbirds) could have been the right name.


I had so much fun painting these 12 days of Christmas.  I created some video shorts explaining my inspiration and some fun facts about the 12 Days of Christmas.  You can find them on my YouTube Channel.


These are done in watercolor, 6in in diameter, with an 8in square mat.  Add the black frame for $10.
