Bird on a Wire

I have a wren (probably more than one actually) that serenades me all the time. He sits on the wire just outside the porch. I love how big he sings for such a tiny little bird. We should all sing big songs!

I've been feeling a little like Austin Powers lately - looking for my lost (painting) mojo! Anybody out there seen it?? I'm trying, folks! It certainly has been elusive. It's not from a lack of wanting to, seems to be in the forgetting how! It seems to take me about 3x as long as I think it should. But I am working on a larger piece and that always takes longer. Ah yes, learning to go with the flow here - a lesson in patience.

on hold

Thanks for visiting!

What a beautiful little bird! Your colors are soft and, as always, I love your brush strokes. Very nice, Deb!

Beautiful painting. I love wrens, also. You'd think their little throats would burst from singing so loud.

Hi Deb,
Great little painting. You make it all
look so easy with bold brush strokes
and subtle blend of colors.

Mojo? I'll help you as soon as I find mine.
Take care pal ... hope that's a smile I see.

and i so know from whence you speak about losing one's mojo - muse - whatever - mine seems to have taken a leave of absence lately, too - perhaps mine is with yours - in parts unknown!!! ;)
