The professor could be a drip sometimes…
So Maryann would come to his rescue!
OK, not really but the title sounded FUN! Remember Gilligan’s Island? If you lived in the United States the 1960’s and ’70’s… (I’m probably dating myself here a little…) 😮 Lol!
I created these paintings with watercolor paint drips and added shading and details with color pencils.
My hubby has the theme song memorized for Gilligan’s Island…Lol! Do you think he watched this show wayyyy too much?
Cheers and HAPPY memories! 🙂

I’ve heard of a housewife…
And a househusband,
But a housebird?!! How absurd!
Well, maybe not…
Ha! A bird has a built-in “feather duster!”
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I wonder if a bird drank KAWF-ee …
Would it order it to go from the “fly-by” window at
Starbucks Starlings Java?
Would it order one shot of expresso or two?
I suppose that would depend on the species of bird…
“I’ll take a Tall, Skinny, Half-Decaf, No-Whip Mocha, please!”
How do you like your coffee?
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday! 🙂
P.S. I enjoyed reading your responses for my dancing bird last Wednesday! I got my boot off my foot and I can start wearing a shoe again! Hoorah!! A good reason to dance! 🙂

I think creating from my imagination is the most fun! I hope you enjoy my ridiculous creatures:
I started each creature with a scrap of gelli-printed paper and then made up the rest of my animal, adding details with a black pen and color pencils.
And yesterday I created this silly Martian and told his story with this Limerick:
May it inspire the child in you to have fun and play in your art!

Since my last post, we have had many changes in weather. It inspired me to draw some of Mother Nature’s moods:
I hope it gives you a smile today!

I thought you might enjoy this silly limerick today with an Italian spin:
Leda Commellini used to serve her homemade Chicken Cacciatore to her friends at her home so she wouldn’t be lonely. Later, her Italian recipes became well-known in Spokane, Washington when a restaurant was opened called, Commellini’s. The restaurant is closed now except for private events but you can still purchase some of Leda’s famous sauces at the local farmer’s market.
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday, Mama Mia!

I have been reading about drawing faces from various sources and decided to try a go at a more “realistic” selfie using my new set of Rembrandt Soft Pastels:
I have only used soft pastels for drawing flowers so this was a bit of a stretch for me!
It helped me to focus on the “shadows” when drawing my face and NOT see it as a face – or MY FACE, eek! That’s really scary as I would spend waaay too much time focusing on wrinkles and double chins…
OH, I see I’m digressing! Lol! 😉 Here I am in my red glasses:
So I’m proud of myself for completing this first “REAL” selfie and to posting it here and on Instagram!!

My hubby gave me an Easter bouquet with pink Phlox which got me thinking about flocks of birds…
Imaginary birds that is!
I love the “phlox” in this photo too:
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday! I hope this gives you a smile today!
