This huge moth was in our backyard and my husband, knowing me so well, called me out there to see it. I couldn’t wait to paint it. When I showed it to my 96 year-old great aunt, she identified it, but I will need to look it up to see how to spell it.

This is kind of a stylized wren, but I think he’s cute and has spunk. Wrens are some of my favorite birds because they are so brave and friendly. They sing a beautiful song, too.

This sweet little bird was on my bird bath and serves as a reminder to look up. It just so happens to illustrate a verse my friend, Beverly, sent to me this morning, “He seldom reflects on the days of his life, because God keeps him occupied with gladness of heart.” Ecclesiastes 5:20
When life gets you down….look up.

Another pair of TOMS. These were for a teenage girl who loves music and these colors. I’m so thankful for my girls who are always available to advise me on younger, hipper looks than I would be able to come up with. Thanks, Lily!

I am feeling pretty smart right now. My paintings are small enough that I can scan them – I don’t have to photograph and download them. Maybe I will post more often. I can see that I will need to crop the shadow in the future. I’m not sure I love the pink background. It was blue and I didn’t love that, either. Any suggestions? We have lots of these little birds at the feeders and they are so sweet with their big, bright eyes.
