I forgot it was Draw a Bird day. I will draw one at work today. I still have some time left.
This was something I started with the edge of a soft pencil. It turned into a horse and then I added the bird. This doesn’t count for Draw a Bird day. I am happy I’ve been drawing in a sketchbook more. And I found the Neocolors that Kerfe gave me for my fortieth birthday. I started playing around with those. They are pretty cool as you can use water to smoosh them around.
blue on blue–feathers
echoing sky holding sun
as wings scatter light
Blue Jay feathers are not really blue, but appear so because of the way the light reflects off of them. At least that’s what all the bird websites say…
I am on call for Federal Jury duty the next 2 weeks. Not sure what it means for getting anything done, but no electronics allowed in Federal Court–including phones–and I have to call every night to see if I need to show up the next day. I may be around, or not.
The birds have been extra-present around here this spring…I can hear them waking the day right now. Happy Draw-a-Bird Day!
