2 Blue Birds Tag to go with a Blue Birds gift

 I used Prsimacolor pencils and pastels. Before I got Minx, I was looking at Blue Birds, however, Kittahs and Birds don't mix. . .Minx won out.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for hosting Paint Party Friday. A fun pace to be, to share, to learn and thank you so much for the comments. They are so needed and appreciated.

 Photos are of nature that I appreciate around me. The Pink, Red and Green trees are out. I love hearing the Fountain and this is our lamp light down the whole Courtyard.

 Robin in the Fountain.
 Dove . . . .
 . . .and other birds come to eat.  The dark purple bird
could be a Grackle or a Purple Martin. . .
 My Aloe has been planted in the Pelican.
 Squirrels still eat around it.
 Minx watches the Squirrels and birds and 
sometimes I hear a twittering sound from her.
 Horse is in the Pasture. . .pretty trees around.
 We had rain. . .my Patio fills up like a pool.
 Trees in Backyard are reflected in a puddle.

large trees and a picket fence.
