Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Draw some Birdies?


I can’t believe it’s October already and I’ve been blogging every day this year?!   Whaaaaa?    Time flies.   And speaking of flying….time to announce the return of Draw A Bird Day this coming Thursday, the 8th!    I’d like to thank A-Wing and A-Way once again for letting us know about the “official” Draw A Bird Day holiday on April 8.   Many of us loved it so much that we’ve been celebrating it on the eighth of each month ever since!   If you’d like to celebrate our wing-ed friends this month, post your artwork on or about Thursday, 10/8, and let me know, so I don’t miss anyone. I’ll be recapping everyone’s posts later this month (after a creative blogging break I’m planning right after this month’s Draw A Bird celebration).     We’d love to have you join us!

I’d like to once again thank Kathy at Backyard Bird Nerd for this amazing shot of a pine warbler that I tried to draw with a very limited Prismacolor palette (because I was too lazy to go down two flights of stairs to get my Polychromos).    I’m trying to be more expressive with my lines too, so this was a fun, colorful, quick exercise.  Time’s been short lately, so not sure the 10/8 one will be much better, lol!   hehe…

Happy October morning to you!   Hug a tree or sketch a leaf today while singing a happy tune.   Make the birdies wonder what you’re up to.   Peace.

  1. Thanks for the reminder, Laura!!! Beautiful little bird you have drawn here! I love Kathy´s blog and I guess my October bird will be one of her´s… Can´t wait to see all of the birdies fly here on WP! 🐥😊

  2. Wow, daily for a solid nine months. That is incredible! And, I can almost hear the bird singing! So beautiful 🙂 Not sure if I will join in or not for the bird recap this month, but I’ll try if I am able. Happy creating!

  3. Here’s to October, one of the most beautiful months of the year! (Though, it’s a little yucky right now with the rain.) And many thanks for maintaining the spirit of “Draw A Bird Day” alive on a monthly basis! I love your illustration!

        1. Yes! :))).

          Yay for sketchbook!! What an inspirational time of the year to start. It is so freaking cool to draw something every day – it’s a great way to mark the day. And you can see your progress! Could just be your thumbnail. I always used to think I had to draw something big or else why do it but that just kept me from doing it at all. You’ve made a start! Very exciting. :))))


I'd love to hear from you! Constructive criticism is most appreciated. Thank you!
