On TV

Love birds
My "Lovebirds" wall art sold by Urban Outfitters is being used as set decor
in the TV series "The New Adventures of Old Christine" :)
Urban Outfitters Wall Art
I was contacted last year by Warner Bros. TV to give them permission to use it on set,
but I hadn't seen it since I don't watch much TV, but my friend and stamp carver extraordinaire Noelle let me know she had spotted them!
"Lovebirds" on TV
Here are a couple of screen shots from the TV show.
"Lovebirds" on TV!
I know you can hardly see them, but I was so excited :)

Thank you so much for voting for me over at Poppytalk.
We are looking good!
The winners will be announced on the 5th of February.

And for those of you who wanted to know the identity of the birdies I spotted on my walk the other day:
1) American Kestrel - Cernícalo Americano
2) Lesser Goldfinch - Jilguero Dominico
3) Chipping Sparrow - Gorrión Ceja Blanca
4) Curve-billed Thrasher - Cuitlacoche Pico Curvo
5) Loggerhead Shrike - Alcaudón Verdugo
6) House Finch - Gorrion (o Pinzón) Mexicano
7) Vermillion Flycatcher - Mosquero Cardenal o Capiturrín
8) Inca Dove - Tórtola Cola Larga

Congratulations! How exciting! Thanks for sharing the bird list - I took bird watching in college (strange, I know, right?), and really enjoyed it... It's nice to know what you've got down there!

Congratulations!! This is my favorite print of yours and I'm happy to see it is getting the fame it deserves!

Geninne, would you mind telling me what brand/model of scanner you use to scan your paintings? They are always so bright and vibrant!

Wow, you've hit the big time! ;) (And they have good taste.)

I know a lot of viewers don't notice what artwork is hanging on a show's set, but I am one of the people that spends more time looking at the set design than watching the show.

Your work is so gorgeous. How wonderful that it's on tv and in Urban Outfitters for that matter. My paintings have been on a few home decor programs and even a movie (that I've never seen) but it's always so exciting.

Excellent work, not doubt about that. To identify your love birds in TV you need a good picture quality and my Dish Network provider has the quality. And those who like lovebirds are romantic.
