pink bird with roving sunflower
First, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who posted on my Illustration Friday birdy. I am blushing and overwhelmed with all the kind words and critiques. They meant a lot! I am taking up the pen again, as it has been awhile. I do love taking ink, making marks and without erasure, just going for it. There are a few others I have been working on which I posted here. Seems I will continue ...
Here is a pink bird for my mother's birthday today. Her favorite shades are in red and deep pink. She will get the real one, but I will make another one for her - very large as she is almost blind. But that doesn't slow her down a bit, at 83 she still works, has her activities and even though she had to stop driving, gets around. Cheers to you mom! If it were not for you, encouraging the artist in me, I wouldn't be so happy today.
The word for the day is ... stamina, which if you have it, flaunt it!
