The Elk and the Magpie

“Change is a part of the flow of life. Sometimes we’re frustrated because change seems slow in coming. Sometimes, too, we’re resistant to a change that seems to have been thrust upon us. We must remember that change, in and of itself, neither binds us nor frees us. Only our attitude toward change binds or frees.”

The Elk and the Magpie – Watercolor Postcard

The photo for this painting was provided by Crias at WetCanvas.  I painted it when I was in Idaho in 2011.    I’m still working on the little painting of the character houses.   I’m loving how it looks so far.  I’ll share it on Monday, hopefully.  🙂

    I was out of town and am now back catching up on everyone’s blogs (except mine!). The Elk with the bird on its head is a wonderfully fun image. I love the trees and snow in the background. I am also a fan of today’s quote. I am not a fan of change, but usually when it happens it’s for the better.

    So cute. I like how you put touches of the same gold from the elk on the snow drifts.

    Really! Great quote and nice pairing with your painting. What a cool thing, the bird and the elk.
