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! 🙂

X, Y, Z And…

I made it through the alphabet for my art journal!  WHOOT!

And I completed 31 days of watercolor in July for World Watercolor Month!!

I thought you might enjoy seeing my finished alphabet pages…

An X-ray Tetra Fish for “X”:

5D08B5A2-2427-48B5-B456-473F039E70F6

“Y” is for Yellow:

A0AF8F2C-47C7-4D53-BDF6-7F9FE796591E

“Z” for Zentangled zoodles… Which are zucchini noodles!

958AB63E-7430-4DAD-814C-9857B98F3C9D

I still want to add paper collage and a few extra details to complete these pages… so stay tuned! 🙂

And I completed 5 additional watercolor pages to finish my 31 days – I will post them later this week…

I am happy to be done so I can focus on some other art projects.  Yet, I had so much fun!

I enjoyed my extra time at the lake last week... I think my highlights were swimming in the lake – three times a day, reading a super good book, painting outside daily, making paper butterflies with a friend, daily naps and cool evenings.

Wishing you a happy day doing what you love!

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 Silhouette

Today’s weird bird has more to do with YOUR imagination!

56A4C613-0A9C-4F10-BB08-EC81CA19E4D1

It is a silhouette of a bird…

What colors do YOU imagine it to be?

What would you name it?

I look forward to hearing your answers!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Just Mating?

Today’s weird birds are just married mating…

27AB906F-9C90-41AF-B4E6-A02305D6CBC5

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

E3BB885A-3E31-48D4-BB1D-3FB86129875E

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! 🙂

A June Bird…

You have heard of a June Bug, right?

Well, why not a June bird!

F6FC2FC6-C678-4ED0-8936-1C7B56A50B11

I decided to try a little something different for today’s weird bird and collage over a watercolor tree I had previously painted in an art journal.

I “repurposed” the word, June from an old wall calendar in several languages and used a page from a weekly paper calendar… I don’t buy weekly calendar’s anymore since I use my cell phone but I still like to buy monthly calendars each year for the inspiring artwork.  How about you?

Hope your June is taking flight for a fabulous month!

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! 😉
