I’m Losing Track of the Days – Here’s Wednesday’s Wacky Bird

….on Thursday with a bonus bird for Winnie

Some days I don’t even get out of my pyjamas until noon and I don’t get moving until dinner time. I’m not depressed but I am under a lot of stress. Our daughter and her husband are looking for a house and the buying market is absolutely crazy. I’m not talking about just Toronto but north, east and west of the city the bids are going $100 000 to $175 000 above the asking price. How young people can afford to buy a house these days is beyond me.

I digress. This post is suppose to be about Kevin’s wacky bird for Wednesday. I know it’s Thursday but I think I felt compelled to tell you why I’m so late. This is Armchair Bird.

Earlier in the week, Winnie was down in the dumps. Her mother told us that even the most random thoughts would make her cry. On Tuesday she started to cry when she found out that Pluto is not considered a planet. I know it’s old news but she’s only five. To cheer her up she requested that her papa draw her a bird that looked like a parrot and that it be called Bonkers. So here is Bonkers the Parrot. By the way, it did the trick.

Wacky Bird Wednesday – February 3, 2021

….my husband came through with another bird

Thank goodness he didn’t leave it up to me. Yesterday was a busy art afternoon with my granddaughter via Zoom and I honestly didn’t have the energy to make more art when I was done. More of that in the next post.

Monster Monday – Double the Fun

my husband was very ambitious this weekend and created two monsters for the price of one

Actually earlier in the week he also painted another two so in fact he has four monsters for today’s post. Quadruple the fun.

He’s also discovered that scanning his work gives a much cleaner finish and eliminates the shadows.

More Seasonal Drawings for W&S

….“can’t let down my fans”

After seeing yesterday’s Monster Monday drawings our 5 year old granddaughter requested a painting of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and our daughter-in-law in London requested a painting for her daughter’s room.

Kevin wasted no time and on top of the snowman that he painted earlier he whipped up a Rudolph painting. He’s a little angry looking but I think he’s had enough of COVID as well. This morning the commissioned monster painting was done, sized to fit in an 8 x 10 frame. Not sure if that one is ready for publication but as soon as I get the green light I will post it.
