Bird Friends



The background on the canvas really did speak to me about where the face should be.

8 X 24 is very hard to photograph


I don't know their story yet.
But she surely has one.
Hope you have a great "random" week.

  3. I'm back.....because OH MY GOSH! The bird doesn't have striped legs, it's wearing striped leggings! If I jump in my chair any longer, it's going to break sending me crashing to the floor! I'm not even close enough to being small enough to be able to jump around in my chair! I'm going to look at it some more....!!!

  21. Hello my friend...it's been a while, yes?? Well, you have not been far from thought..so here you are making my most favorite characters...faeries...and I simply and quickly decided that this fae loves her stripey leggings so much...almost as much as she loves her feathered friends..and they love her equally.....so much, in fact that they don stripey leggings (even though they can't quite figure out her bizarre mode of dress)to be somewhat like her....because birds of a feather where stripey socks together.

    And that's that.
    Lots of love xox Rellalalala

  22. I woke up in the night thinking about this, I thought a book would be great about the girl who loved and took care of birds. I thought her name would be Pheobe Tweet,
    and she loved loons, cardials, pileated woodpeckers, sandhil cranes, pelicans, that sort of thing, words of love and care and the mysteriousness of finding these birds wearing stockings. she would look so lovely in fishnet holding an odd fish for the pelican.

    Oh I gotta go lightning. Just a thought in the night.
