Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

May your imagination soar! Cheers! 🙂

A Picasso Bird

Carla Sonheim shared how to make Picasso Dogs that were 3-dimensional in her free summer art camp for kids this summer.  If you missed it, please check out Carla’s online classes at CarlaSonheim.com

I decided to try my hand at a Picasso bird yesterday…

I have it folded into a mini book, below is the front and back:

A bird released:

The unveiling…

 

 

Can you find the 2 eyes, 2 wings, 2 feet and a beak?

A Knit-Capped Crane

One never knows when they will spot a Knit-Capped Crane in the fresh water of a marsh:

9D8D1C7D-A159-4FD2-9DAA-8624BDF3FB00

This weird bird is related to the “Hooded” Crane…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday! 

Cheers! 🙂

P.S. Can you find the hidden hand in the bird’s body?

Two Love Birds…

Love was in the air recently when I was at the lake…

9C8C1BBF-374F-458B-BCF0-2D2A14FE508B

These two love birds were inspired by several hummingbirds that were “pursuing” each other during “Happy Hour” when I had gathered to share an appetizer and a glass of wine with several friends.  The hummingbirds had their own “Party Punch,” otherwise known as sugar water (nectar) to dine on…

And the hummers zipped and dipped and buzzed by us with glee!  It was quite the love affair. Lol!

Wishing you a happy weird bird Wednesday

Cheers! 🙂

Watermelon Birds?!

Nothing beats the heat like a slice of watermelon…

These weird birds made their “appearance” for the letter, “W”:

91AE6490-6979-4880-97C4-AD5E4548C758

They are wacky Watermelon birds!

I used watermelon images from my Bon Appétit magazine and painted their beaks with watercolor. A few details were added with a pencil, black micron pen and white gel pen.

Carla Sonheim is offering FREE art videos for Kid’s Art Camp this week.  Each day is a short video.  I always enjoy participating and seeing what others create.  Any age can sign up.  I encourage you to check it out at CarlaSonheim.com

These “wild” birds were from lesson one:

I hope you join in the fun… and be sure to have a slice of watermelon!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers!

A Squirrely Bird

Today’s weird bird is a little…

1108251C-84ED-40DC-97C0-C7D6EC4B493A

Squirrely!

This bird is sometimes confused with a “whirlybird…”  Hmmm, I wonder why?!  Lol!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I hope this silly bird gives you a smile today…

Cheers! 🙂

A Trumpet Beak

Today’s weird bird is rather loud…

17A09B23-4C16-447A-BA4E-339D29BA8137

And this Trumpet Beak likes to toot his own horn…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Focus On A Floccus

According to Dictionary.com –

Floccus is

  1.  (noun) A small tuft of woolly hairs.
  2. (adjective) Meteorology (of a cloud) having elements in the form of small, rounded tufts.

My version of a Tufted Floccus:

5397D124-F813-400D-94F4-973E9F4B926F

This weird bird often appears to be scowling and yet I think he is only focusing on his next meal… (something I seem to be thinking about a lot lately since I’m trying to loose a little weight!)

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I hope this bird gives you a smile today…

Cheers! 🙂

P.S.  I imagine you won’t look at tufted clouds without thinking of this weird bird! 😉

 

A Little Art

Hello friends,

I am feeling much better and happy to be blogging again! YAY! 😃

I couldn’t stay away from creating in my art journal for too long…

08D56CE8-DB06-4BC4-90C8-624DB8C03EBF

And discovered this sketchbook to be the perfect size for a little art!  

AD3C3CA5-E747-41E1-8B8B-EB7B0119D625

Sometimes I think I have to make something BIG for it to be considered as ART…

DA7B8126-5A13-4F1C-8D90-BF4CAFBD8C9A

Yet, this is not true!  After all, flowers come in all shapes, color and sizes so why not art?

And art journaling isn’t about a MASTERPIECE…

025E3C6D-8CDF-4F44-80FE-DAE8C2232A8B

But EXPLORING and creating…

4B1976F7-ECDD-41CA-A3DD-9940864E8ED7

And experimenting with different art mediums!

Who knows what discoveries I will make by creating a little art in my journal…

2D3D5F7E-A0E5-4EC0-B392-B68162D92331

I encourage you to give it a try!

Plant a little art today…

Cheers! 🙂
