Hi everyone. I just finished working this morning, and I’m taking a break.
When I was talking to myself a minute ago (yes I do talk to myself,) I said,
"soon you will be free as a bird."
Right now the birds are fluttering around the bird feeders my husband hangs
off our garage. It's such a treat to watch them. We see Cardinals, Blue Jays,
Robins, Chickadees, Hawks, Blackbirds, Grackles, and of course Sparrows on a regular basis.
So I thought I’d show you some bird art today. There was a time when I included
Cardinals, and other birds in my portraits. I’ve never owned a bird as a pet, but I
know people who have. As a child I was very fond of the neighbourhood kid's crow.
I hope you’re having a good day, and if you have work to do I hope you get it done
in time to enjoy the rest of this weekend, and feel free as a bird.
Stay safe and stay healthy.
I see pretty much the same birds in my yard, along with titmouses, nuthatches, and a couple of differeint types of woodpeckers. This fall a bunch of evening grosbeals flew through, stopping at my birdbath--luckily I haooened to be outside to see it.
Love these bird portraits!
Thank you so much Laura,
I love your bird paintings, and all of your paintings. Your work is amazing!
Birds are such a cheerful sight.
