Blue Flowerdy Bird – Watercolor

Another archive bird.  Now days, I’d have outlined it in ink.  It’s fun to revisit these birds, while I try to play catch up.  🙂

About Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson, the sharp-witted British essayist, wrote the first English language dictionary; his definitions still form the backbone of current dictionaries. He was born in Staffordshire in 1709. Johnson married a widow 20 years his senior and lived in poverty before achieving success with his essays when he was in his forties. Later in life, he befriended the young James Boswell, whose Life of Johnson became the quintessential English biography. Johnson died in 1784.

    Love your birds, but it is strange to see them without your outlining style!!! I alway enjoy a trip over to see your work.
