Papa Bird Dressed for Easter – Watercolor & Ink

“I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate. It is, after all, to matter: to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.”
– Leo Rosten

Papa Bird Dresses for Easter – Watercolor & Ink

I painted this little dude at the same time as I painted yesterday’s mama bird.  I really love his shoes!  I would wear those shoes… much to the horror of my poor “footwear conservative” hubby.  He hates my red high tops.  he he he 😀

    I love Papa Bird as well as Mama Bird! They are so fun and whimsy – just adorable! And I love both of the quotes that go with them.

    I would also wear these shoes! So cute! Momma bird’s shoes are also stylish.. but much too high for me. I believe I said the same thing last time you did high heels! Mama also has a great hat, and Papa has a great tie. These are really adorable.
