I thought I would share each of my morning paintings with you today from last week. I don’t paint in “realism” very often anymore, so these stretched me a bit. It felt good to challenge myself. I am not even sure I shared all of these with my family while we were there. LOL I would get back to the room and it was time to get ready for other things, but I don’t want to leave these hidden in my files–that isn’t the purpose of art. Well, sometimes it is, but not this time. 🙂
I cannot find the name of this little bird, staff just called it a yellow breast. This little guy was shy, it took some concentration to draw him quickly! And he has a funny little song–kind of scratchy.
I had actually drawn this before we went! But I painted down there thinking of the women in church singing and all the bright colors they wore for Easter–and all the time.
I hope you enjoyed these. Have a great day. I am trying to remember to look for the beauty in my everyday here back in Chi-land. Maybe I will inspire you to look for some in your place!
