A Feathery Little Bird

A Feathery Little Bird

I am going to revisit my various bird paintings, while I try to get some new work done.  I hope that’s okay.  There are some cuties.

My sign shop continues to be insanely busy!  I am trying to stay off the computer as much as possible.  It’s hard, too.  Since I work alone, the computer is my connection to so many people and so much brain stimuli.  But as everyone knows… it’s easy for a quick 15 minute look-see to turn into an hour of no work getting done.

Okay… here I go…  really…. going to make signs…. yes I am….. bye…….  for now.    😀

It’s Really a Paisley Horse!  6″ x 8″ Watercolor and Black Staedtler Pigment Liner

Yes… I think we have already established that I’m a little bit wacko!  But, in case you weren’t sure… this should remove all doubt.  (Especially since I an considering a series.)

The border and background is inspired by Mexican Folk Art and the paisley?   Pure Bethville.  😀

About T.S. Eliot

T.S. Eliot, the Nobel Prize–winning poet, is perhaps best known today for a light book of rhymes that became the Broadway hit Cats. He penned such weightier poems as “The Waste Land,” “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” and “Four Quartets.” His work is rich with deeply felt religious meditations, but he never wanted to be perceived as a religious poet. He was born in 1888 in St. Louis and made his adult home in England, where he worked as an editor at the publisher Faber & Faber. He died in 1965.
