I like to get up with the sun somedays ~
other days I let her get up first….
Today I was up & at 'em early.
So early, that Iggy want's quite sure what to do with himself.
He usually rises slowly,
heading to the first sun-patch he can find ~
but this morning, it was just starting to peek into the sewing room window…
I love his expression, and how I captured his reflection.
(but OH how I hate that filthy window ~ that is on the OUTside my friends!!)
Spring cleaning can't come soon enough for this farmwife!
Why was I up so early?
...even before the roosters???
I wanted to do this:
|working on notecards & prints|
I shared this little Robin girl with you a few weeks back ~
she was only sketched in pencil at the time…
...she's been pestering me daily and
~ it is now time to finish her.
I wanted to get started on the penning & painting of her today…
and was thinking & thinking about it all night as I tried to sleep.
~ so, up I popped out of bed and here I am still!
|wistfully dreaming about her future….a sweet little nest with white-birch branch fence|
~ a couple of hatchlings perhaps?
I think I captured her well ~
she has been living in my thoughts for quite-some-time…
~ happy to bring her to life finally :)
|preparing to write a poem to her beloved ~ remember I started her before Valentines day ~|
I love penning in the details
~ like her feathers and the satin ribbon at her neck & waist…
...shadows and highlights and texture will come with my watercolors next ~
I will share my finish of her soon!
between stitching (punching, hooking, etc…)
I like to give my hands (and brain) a rest and work in paints ~
….it is good for me to flit-between mediums. keeps me sane (ha!)
well, the sun has now gone back to bed it seems ~
while writing this post, the clouds have crept in and I believe I hear
faint raindrops on the old tin roof….
~ i think it will be a perfect day for painting ~
have a beautiful day my friends ~ no matter the weather.
* Blessed be *
