Purple Rain Bird

my version of Prince as a bird

On Saturday I took an on-line class with Mark Brewer from Etchr Labs and learned about sketching characters and adding watercolour. All of us in the class did the same bird. It was fun and because it was a Zoom class we could see everyone’s work at the end of the hour.

Now Kevin thinks I should take over Wednesday’s Wacky Bird. Too much pressure and besides I wouldn’t want to take away the joy he gets from drawing his lovely birds. Maybe I’ll contribute once in awhile.

Lighting Up the Path

thanks to Becky B. for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/31/square-up-31/

Can’t believe that this is the last day of the challenge, SquareUp. Becky has done a great job of hosting this challenge and I’m looking forward to the next Square challenge in April.

I have a few more square photos that didn’t make it into to 31 days so I’ll just post them as a bonus. You can interpret them anyway you want….messed up, tangled up, up the road, iced up, dried up, etc.

More UpSquare Trees – January 30, 2021

….thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/30/square-up-30/

I’ve posted an uprooted tree earlier in the challenge but this one is spectacular. We discovered it on our walk through Ball’s Falls Conservation Area. Another uprooted or fallen tree had an interesting hollowed out core and I found myself looking up into the hollows of this tree.

Friendly Friday Challenge – Special Treats

...thanks to Sandy this week for hosting the Friendly Friday Challenge https://thesandychronicles.blog/2021/01/29/friendly-friday-challenge-special-treats/

I have quite the sweet tooth but mostly for cookies or cakes. I’ve never been one for candy, other than chocolate. My husband also has a sweet tooth and he has asked me not to bring any sweets into the house for awhile. If I have one cookie he’ll eat three.

For the challenge this week I’ve gone back into the archives to search for special treats. I soon discovered that not all yummy pleasures have to be made with sugar. Fresh strawberries and homemade pizza are always special in our house.
