Wacky Bird in Pink

….this week’s Wacky Bird Wednesday is sporting pink plumageK

Kevin is not sure why this week’s bird is so pink. He was very busy this week and quickly drew and painted this character. The bird doesn’t look particularly pleased with his colouring but Kevin and I both love it.

Lines in Art – October Square

….thanks to Becky B for hosting https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/10/06/past-squares-6/

This month Becky is opening up October Square to any of the themes from the last four years. Today I’m choosing lines. On my recent trip to the McMichael Art Gallery in Kleinburg I was introduced to an artist that is new to me. Her name is Denyse Thomasos (1964–2012). She was a Trinidadian-Canadian artist whose epic paintings incorporate imagery from a range of sources, including Caribbean textiles, historic slave ships, industrial shipyards, graveyards, villages and maximum security prisons.
