I want to once again acknowledge M. R. Emberson of A-Wing and A-Way for alerting the WordPress community to the holiday for drawing birds on April 8. A group of other artists and I have been carrying on the tradition monthly ever since, and it’s been lots of fun.
Unfortunately this weekend got a bit busy, and so I’ll be posting this month’s contribution in stages. I got the idea for this one from this earlier post, dubbed “The Yellow Bird of Happiness” by my husband. That bird was so full of joy that he makes me smile every time I flip back to that journal page. I thought it might be fun to make him the central motif in an art quilt. Working with fabric is certainly rewarding, but it was soooo much faster to do that quick watercolor sketch. hehe.
I think I’ll call this one “A New Song” (which reminds me of the Father Tim book series by Jan Karon, which started with “At Home in Mitford”. Does anyone else love this series? “A New Song” was the fifth installment). I hope that the finished project will come somewhat close to the vision I have for it in my head. 🙂
I hope you’ll join me next week for the Draw A Bird Day recap, when I post a link to the artwork of all of the bloggers who joined us this month! Peace, and I hope you all have a great week ahead.
