We had a stormy day with sleet & freezing rain~
It would get dark in the studio...
So I put a load of laundry in.
It would brighten up~ I would paint!
I would fold some clothes!
Just enough waves of light to finish my collection of bird eggs!
I cannot claim that they are scientifically accurate~
I can say they are based on notes I have taken through the years.
Based on 27 of my favorite birding books...
Based on sketches drawn from eggs found in our birdhouses~
Identifying the eggs by the birds that flew out!
Based on some sketches I have made at museums & nature centers.
I stopped climbing trees to look in nests for eggs~
The neighbors would be concerned if they saw that!
My husband would be concerned if he saw that!
Our son just returned home from a tour of the United Kingdom
with his high school select choir group.
He had an amazing time... wants to go as a family soon.
He told me I would LOVE the birds!
I know I would be captivated by it ALL~
They would be lovely tour guides!
I have listed a few of these in my Etsy shop...
Hope to add prints of my watercolors to the shop soon.
I will share about it here when I do!
Feathered friends hard at work...
Eastern Bluebirds are putting in long hours building the
perfect nest in one of our bluebird houses~
Our landscape is still rather dull so their brilliant blue
catches our attention as they dash about!
They love to perch in the tippy top of a baby maple tree!
Hope your day is filled with pleasant visits~
