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?

And a surprise message on its wing for you:

When it is “time” for me to create a weird bird…

and not an idea comes to me…

Nonsense prevails…

This is a “Watch Knot-Whatnot” bird…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

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! 🙂

Just Mating?

Today’s weird birds are just married mating…

This “odd” couple was inspired by this old photograph:

I hope this post gives you a giggle today… 😃

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

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 Wild Quacker…

There is a saying, “If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.”

Apparently, this person never heard of Weird Bird Wednesday…

18D39C12-8FD5-4CA2-BA53-48CAA0E99931

This is a wild Quacker, like a wild card, uh, I mean duck!

YOU get to name it!

That is if you want to play along…

Happy Wild Duck Wednesday!  hehe

Cheers! 🙂

P.S.  No “fowl” language…haha
