The Dancing Raven – Watercolor & Ink

This bird looks like he’s dancing to me.  He’s doing a little Fred Astair move here.  Can you see it?  🙂

I love that quote!  My husband says if you don’t know how to do something, you can pull it off… as long as you look cool doing it.  I like that, too.

About Colette

Colette was the pen name of Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, the French author acclaimed for her intimate, lyrical novels, including Chéri and The Vagabond. Born in Burgundy in 1873, she moved to Paris in 1893 when she married Henri “Willy” Gauthier-Villars, who locked her in a room and demanded that she write. After their divorce, she became a music-hall performer and continued to write. During World War I, she converted her second husband’s estate into a hospital for the wounded. She died in 1954.
