Draw A Bird, March 2021

Hi Friends! It’s good to participate again in Draw A Bird celebrations on the 8th of each month.

Admittedly, I painted this fellow at the end of last year but never had time to write a post for him. It was one of my more successful attempts to paint loosely, which I find challenging. Thanks for stopping by and stay well!

Draw A Bird Day, November 2020

Hi Friends. I have been enjoying our amazing fall weather and changing colors of the leaves. The squirrels are busy preparing for the colder weather, and the birds are always feasting at our feeders. Little finches like this one are numerous and constantly on the lookout for our neighborhood hawk and the cat from next door. Thank goodness the blue jays are so boisterous and squawk out their warning cries when danger is near.

I’ve been MIA from my blog for almost a month and have a lot of reading to catch up on. As if 2020 itself wasn’t bad enough, sadly we lost my dear father-in-law last month, and then we lost an uncle recently to Covid, so I just haven’t been in a creative mood. Sorry to be so glum, but I’m just being honest. Tell me how you’ve been; I’d love to hear how you are holding up. Sending virtual hugs to you all!

Draw A Bird, April 2020

Hi friends. How is everyone doing? We are holding up well and distracting ourselves with some home projects, cooking, and jigsaw puzzles.

Today is the real Draw A Bird Day, even though many artists draw or paint a bird on the 8th of every month just for fun. Spring is here in full force and robins are hopping all around our backyard, so I thought it appropriate to honor them.

I pray that you and your families are safe and well, and I’m sending positive thoughts and love as we continue to shelter in place. Hopefully by next month’s Draw A Bird Day, we will be enjoying some normalcy to our days. Be well!

Draw A Bird, December 2019

I love watching the cardinals in the back yard this time of year. They really stand out against the starkness of the winter landscape and just make me happy.

My parents have a cardinal that sits on their windowsill and looks in at them when it wants a treat. Sometimes it will hang on the mailbox and look in their front door at them! Pretty smart if you ask me. I gave this little painting to my Mom for her birthday to remind her of the funny antics nature has to offer. ❤

We’ve made it through the second week. I tried to limit myself to 15 minutes or fewer to get these onto paper and had some hits and misses, but they were fun to try.
