There are House finches beginning to build a nest outside my studio, under our upstairs bedroom deck. We had a successful brood several years ago but the nest after it was raided by crows. Now we actually have a family of crow that visit us daily. Hoping for the best.
I am enjoying the bird songs closer to our windows and that has prompted me to post bird things, partly because my wing has been clipped, so to speak, so there’s not much stitching being done right now. Some of these may have been posted here in the past. This may be more for a laugh than inspirational but I figure we can always use a laugh.
I plan to try and re-paint some of the sky in Mirage because there is shadow through around some seam allowances, which I didn’t notice for the longest time. It’s on the list.
I think drawing birds is a challenge but I really like them in most any medium. Do you use birds in your art?
I’m back but going forth! Though I haven’t posted for a while I have been in the studio working on online lessons for Curious.com and a few other things. The wheels are turning with new ideas and projects I want to make. Now I’m getting ready to leave for a little R&R with my Mister, which may be hard to get with projects looming in my brain. But I look forward to peace and quiet.
I know I will be doing a lot of walking while away because that is what we do – self guided tours of wherever we go. Last week Mister and I were taking a morning walk and just as a large dark shadow passed overhead I heard a little splat sound. Bird plus splat usually equals something messy on a hat or shirt. But not this time. I looked down and rocking on the ground was a tiny egg shell. I suspect that dark shadow flew off with breakfast, dropping the empty shell as it escaped. The “Circle of Life” always makes me a little sad! Anyway I leave you with this art piece, yet to be quilted… What do you think about this tentative title – “The Watchers”?
