Shake Your Tail Feathers!

It seems I forgot that yesterday was Draw A Bird Day – unofficial of course but celebrated on the 8th of each month by some of my talented art and bird friends! 🙂

I may be a day late but I can still shake my tail feathers!

Celebrating that the weekend is here!  Hoorah!

Cheers! 🙂

Common “Redpoll” – 2

I haven’t drawn a bird for “Draw A Bird” day in awhile… so yesterday I decided to give it a try in my Alphabet Journal:

The letter “R” is for (Common) Redpoll:

I sketched my bird in pencil, added Micron pen in brown and black ink, color pencils and white gel pen.  It was a good way to de-stress from my day! 😉

I painted this bird in a more whimsical style that you can find, here from 2016.

What a great little red hat this bird wears!

Cheers!  🙂

P.S. I almost didn’t create a post for today because my hubby and I were busy moving his mother into a retirement home so she could receive more care.  But I needed time to unwind so this was my way to relax!  Phew! 😯

Birdman

Rocky Wren believed he was a bird in a former life…

Dear Mom…

A friend’s mom was having a birthday and asked for postcards with cats to wish her a happy day.  It was easier for me to use postcards that were cut and ready for art.

I decided to combine collage using gelli-printed paper and Neocolors water-soluble crayons (since they happened to be next to me.)  Here are the ones I did for her mom:

They were so much fun to make that I decided to create several for my mother-in-law too!  She loves flowers! 🌷

I know I enjoy receiving cards in the mail so I think she will too.  I will make several in advance so I can mail one a week.

Who do you know that would love to receive a postcard in the mail with your art?

Cheers!  🙂

Ice Cube Birdy

I was thinking of the Hip-Hop song, “Ice Ice Baby,” by Vanilla Ice for today’s bird…

Well, not really… I was thinking the title of the song was “Ice Cube Baby!”  Lol!  🙂

I tend to make up my own titles and words to songs… much like this imaginary bird!

The forecast is for extra “frigid” temperatures in the Pacific Northwest the next few days…  I think the birds will be thinking, “Ice Cube Baby!”

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

Bundle up and stay warm for those of you who live where it’s cold outside and PLEASE send some heat if you who live where it’s warm!!

Cheers!!  🙂

A Paper Wreath

Wreaths delight me…

Three Turtle Doves?!

I was listening to the song, “The Twelve Days of Christmas” yesterday…when these three wild birds showed up!

Wishing you a HAPPY day while singing this joyful song…

Cheers!!  🙂

Harold’s Surprise

Perhaps you remember Harold from last week…if not you can find him, here.   Well, he is here today to reveal his surprise!!  (Drum roll, please!!!)

Meet Harold’s wife, Henrietta!  She always makes the sun shine even on a cloudy day!

Henrietta is all dressed up in her finest feathers to greet you!

Her feathered do is stylized in a bouffant with a branch and leaf or two.  She is wearing the latest glamourous party dress by Robyn’s Egg  paired with an authentic “Nine-Nest” bird-wing bag.  The tip of her beak and the tips of her bird feet are tinted in Autumn Berry Blush.

Harold is thankful for his styling wife, Henrietta!  She lights up his world!!

Happy Thanksgiving, Friends!  🙂

P.S.  And thanks for lighting up my world with all your kind comments throughout the year on my blog!  Cheers!
