Engine Engine #9

I am still into jigsaw puzzles…

Here is the third one I did with butterflies:

It was more complicated with all the colors and took me longer than a week to complete.

Today’s weird bird is another puzzle!

A black and white one…

Engine Engine #9

Can you find the engine? And the #9’s? (Hint: There are several)

Engine, engine number nine

Coming down the railroad line…

Perhaps you remember this song written and recorded by the American country music artist, Roger Miller. The song was released in May 1965 according to Wikipedia.

If you get a chance, listen to Roger Miller sing his song on YouTube. It may bring a smile to your face as it did mine! The lyrics are a hoot!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Puzzler

Did you know that January is national puzzle month?

I have completed one 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle with Happy Buttons:

And I am working on a second one with Houseplants:

Sometimes my weird birds start out like a puzzle:

I started this trio in watercolor. Then I added a little paper collage:

Next, some details with color pencils:

And finished with pencil shading:

What kind of puzzles do YOU like to work on?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Quilted Quince

High winds today where I live…

A good day to stay bundled up in a warm quilt!

These two words, quilt and quince were next to each other in my children’s dictionary. I thought they sounded like a good weird bird!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Smitten With Mittens

It is snowing buckets today in the Pacific Northwest where I live.

Imagine my surprise when I looked out my window and saw…

A flock of weird birds smitten with mittens!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

Cheers! 🙂

Jingle Jangle

Two little birds flew in to jingle jangle their bells last night…

Hoping your holidays are a delight!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Friends!

Cheers! 🙂

Lazy Susan

Susan always served the best appetizers for her feather friends…

She would sit down with a plate on her belly and slowly spin the plate around so everyone could sample the seeds…

This is why she was nicknamed, Lazy Susan.

One never knows what will inspire a silly weird bird!

I drew this pattern with Copic markers yesterday evening:

Earlier in the day, I painted these papers:

It was to create this project:

I hope you let your imagination soar!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

P.S. I’m posting a little late today… feeling kind of lazy I guess! 😉

A Moose Goose?

This weird bird flew out of my imagination!

I started with an eyes closed drawing and discovered what looked to me like a moose! So I added a little collage:

A blue Moose Goose is on the loose!

I hope this silly bird gives you a smile today!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Thingamabob…

I haven’t forgotten today’s weird bird

It is A Thingamabob and A Thingamajig!

Now where did I put my car keys…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

May it be a memorable day for you!

Cheers! 🙂

This Spud’s for you!

I haven’t posted in a little while on my blog…

I hope you are all well!

It has been raining A LOT where I live in the Pacific Northwest which makes me feel like a couch potato

It was my inspiration for today’s weird bird:

May it give you a smile and bring you a little sunshine on a cloudy day!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Weird Weather

Spring brings such weird weather and today was no exception!

I woke-up to two inches of new SNOW!! What a surprise!

These weird birds were surprised too… One bird in particular!

What do you think the other birds are saying?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂
