Draw A Bird, May 2020

I’ve been working with my pastels again lately and painted (yes, it is still called a painting even though it is made with pastels) this kingfisher bird on gray pastel paper.

Kingfishers like to swoop around and fish in streams and lakes, and I first saw one last year while in Asheville, North Carolina. Also, I painted one in March 2017 for Draw A Bird Day. As I said in that post, their feather colors are so pretty!

How are things going for you? I hope you are hanging in there and feeling optimistic about the future! I love that the weather has changed and that the trees and plants are budding and blooming. I am sending good wishes to you, and please stay well!

  1. Lovely kingfisher, Carol! 💕Very cool that you and Kerfe both drew kingfishers coincidentally. Thanks for the optimistic words. I haven’t quite managed to get the hang of optimism this week, but maybe next week. The budding plants and many birds have definitely been lovely.

  2. Thank you, Myr. I hope this week has been better for you. I ended up with an abscessed tooth and had a root canal, so I guess I’ll start out fresh next week. (Hopefully the swelling will be gone by then!) Be well!!
