Old Geyser

Today’s weird bird is sometimes confused with an old Geezer bird…

But this one is definitely an Old Geyser!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Spotted Quail

I spotted a Quail in my yard the other day. I just love watching them skitter across the yard always on the look out for my cat!

Today’s weird bird resembles a Quail:

Perhaps it is a Spotted Quail?

Did you know the little apostrophe on top of both male and female‘s heads is called a plume or topknot? The male’s plume is more pronounced.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

If The Shoe(bill) Fits…

Today’s weird bird is my interpretation of a Shoebill bird from the cover of this book:

Is this one tough old bird?

Well, if the Shoe(bill) fits…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Snowbird?

During a recent snow storm…

A weird bird of a different flock showed up…

A Snowbird!

Not the typical snowbird that goes to warmer weather during the winter…

It was a good day to complete another jigsaw puzzle:

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Stay warm! 😃

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!

A Quilted Quince Bird

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Stay warm! 🙂

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! 🙂

Earmarked

I finished my beetle doodle that I started recently. I enjoyed working on it in the evenings.

I enjoyed adding gold ink in addition to black ink:

I started another story in my art journal. Perhaps you remember; Meet Linda and Bob – Part 2

This one is earmarked for more word play! I am using a thesaurus for my story prompts this time.

I plan to show my completed journal page this Friday… I hope you will earmark this post!

Cheers! 🙂

Clown Fish

I REELED in some creative fun yesterday…

And used a few neglected art supplies (rubber stamps) to create this Clown Fish in my sketchbook:

Perhaps you remember the funny fish I previously posted on Friday’s? If not, you can find them under my art categories on the top right side of this post as FUNny Fish Fry-days!

I won’t be creating a fish every Friday but I thought it might give you a smile when I do!

Happy Fishing!

Cheers! 🙂

A Game Changer

I am very excited about Carla Sonheim’s year-long online class for 2020!

It is called, “Words and Pictures.”

For the first assignment, I used the phrase, “This might be impossible to read but it was fun to make,” using a game theme:

I am hoping this class will be a game changer for me and help me write a children’s book!

If you are interested in Carla’s class, you can watch a 3 minute intro video at CarlaSonheim.com

Cheers! 🙂
