Does My Butt Look Fat in These Feathers?

“Inspiration usually comes during work, rather than before it.”

Does My Butt Look Fat in These Feathers?

Watercolor & Sharpie

My husband named this painting.  Isn’t he witty?  I painted some simple little birds a couple weeks ago, just to have fun and practice birds.  I really enjoyed it.  As you may have noticed,  if you were reading this blog a couple years ago, I did a series of 24 birds for an exchange once.  I’m guessing you may not be ready to see another 24 of anything from me, after just getting through the frog series.  🙂

As soon as I dig myself out of the pile of sign work I came back to, I am going to do some more original paintings.  I’ll share these little birds in the meantime.  Thanks so much for coming by and visiting my blog.  You make my day!

    I believe the scientific name for this bird is “Bluetailed Asstree Sparrow“ or not! I like the look over the shoulder, what are you looking at attitude coming from him.

    You’ve done it again. Big Smiles. I saw the title in my email, but when I saw the bird there came my smile. That was very clever of your husband to come up with that name.
    I guess I’ll be bird watching for a while.
