Art Deco Birds

Not sure if this is Art Deco or Art Nouveau. I'll let you all decide. This measures about 15" x 19" and was a bright, fun way to depict my favorite subject, birds.

Nouveau or Deco, I'm not sure, but I do know this is ART. Your birds are striking and really beautiful! Well done!!!

Terrific birds...and of course Art! I'm still not sure of the difference between Deco and Nouveau, seems to me there is a lot of cross-over. Any way, I love it. Your colors are awesome!

This is a wonderful piece! Great colors, good design, and beautiful quilting! It's fun to look at! It has that Art Deco feel, with graceful curves and stylized images.

Yes, Beautiful, whatever you call it!

Great use of color and the stylized images are very deco-nouveau!

To me this depicts both art deco and art nouveau in certain elements. The colors are wonderfully vivid and the border sets the birds off well! I like the way in which you incorporated the leaf motifs within the body of the piece.
