For whatever reason birds have been on my brain lately. So I decided to use them as my muse for some watercolor painting play. I began by drawing a quick sketch.
And then I colored in the birds with watercolor paint. Next I added some stitching details using my sewing machine, and then I used scissors to cut out each bird shape. The coloring and cutting part reminded me of how I used to play with paper dolls growing up. I used to do this for hours…did you?
Once the birdies were done I moved on to making a home for them…in this case it was in the form of a collage on canvas.
This big birdie faces both the sun and her little loved one.
Behind the birdie the days keep ticking by.
But no matter how quickly time flies by, this birdie’s eyes are focused on the sun…and the bright spots in life.
Each new day is a gift. So “rise and shine”, and greet it with glee. This thought keeps me grounded. This thought keeps me grateful.
