  1. Thank you so much for the mention Laura. 🙂 I do not have a personal relationship with birds as we seldom have them around here. The only bird I often see is a maya. This new journey could be a start of something special. Thank you for the inspiration and for introducing me to birds my bird tutor. 🙂 Now, off to read and enjoy everyone’s entry.

    1. Grateful for you too, my sweet! And yay for splashing! I’m hoping to also. Oh how I was dreading painting in WC all month but it turns out I’m really enjoying it and finding the love for it again! Very happy about that. 💛💛💛💛💛

  4. Marvellous bird drawing and painting, Laura! And thanks so much for all the links. I’m enjoying checking out the bird art. And you’ve got me thinking of bluebirds – I’ve never seen one. I don’t think any live around where I live, but there are definitely some a short drive away. Some day I’ll go looking…

    Have a lovely Sunday! 🙂 ❤


  5. It was fun looking at all the links and seeing all the talented artists. If you ever do Draw a Dog a day month I might participate as I have one dog drawing I did – maybe I will be inspired to do more – ha!


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