Seeing the work of other artists and their interpretations of the prompts has been inspiring! Thanks, Charlie, for hosting the event, and I hope it raised the much-needed funds for The Dreaming Zebra Foundation!

Again, here’s a little more info on World Watercolor Month and the mission to help young artists through The Dreaming Zebra Foundation.   This is a charity providing support so that children and young adults are given an equal opportunity to explore and develop their creativity in the arts.

Draw a Bird, October 2018

This little bird frequents our yard feeders, although I’m not sure if it is a house finch or a purple finch. One recent morning I found him sitting in the grass, obviously distressed. I placed some seed near him hoping that he would recover from whatever happened. Some of his feathers seemed out of place, and I suspected he flew into the screened porch or perhaps had a run in with the neighbor cat or some other creature.

I watched out for him all day, but later that afternoon he was no longer in the grass. However, to my surprise, he was sitting in the clear-view feeder attached to the window. Still looking rather ruffled, I was glad to know that at least he could fly and get to the food himself.

That was weeks ago, and I see him each day at the feeders, bird bath, or simply chirping in the tree. His flight is impaired and clumsy, so I hope he will be okay through the autumn and winter.

I decided to paint him without the bent feathers as surely he’d want his portrait to reveal his best self!

World Watercolor Month 2018 – Last Days’ Recap

Here we are at the tail end of World Watercolor Month 2018.  This is the first time I’ve painted each and every day for 31 days and followed most of the prompts (I made up a few of my own).  Thanks to Charlie of Doodlewash, who started this month-long celebration three years ago – it’s been a lot of fun!
