Happy Palm Sunday and my Sunday Sketches......

Birds of a Feather 2

birds of a feather If you have been following my work lately you will notice a lot of winged creatures....all inspired by the busy birds outside my windows making nests and singing and welcoming Mother Spring....this little Sunday Sketch inspired a few pieces...

Is it Spring in your neck of the woods? or are you on the opposite end of the world where Fall is upon you....I personally love each and every Season....they all bring new inspiration and are like a fresh new start when they come for their annual visit......

The piece above is called "birds of a feather"  and the bottom one is titled....."love will bring us together"

Hellooooooo!!! I am not sure. I am not used to Happy Palm Sunday because I am supposed to be solemn. This is the week my Mother told me to not talk unless it is extremely important. For a child, I thought not talking was worst than fasting. I remembered whispering to my sisters and I really felt guilt guilty if I laughed or giggled. One of my sisters teased me by saying funny things in a solemn way and I would giggle and she pretended to have nothing to do with it.

Your drawing is so peaceful. It denotes a certain serenity and calm. I wish you a good week Diana. Kiss and hug that handsome Cole for me, please before he grows up so fast and thinks it is yucky. Tsup!

Hi Diana, I'm loving your birds.. they are so soft and dreamy...Spring here is beginning to be more like summer... a little hot for the flowers..

Christine said...

Easter lovebirds, how nice. It's wet snow today...but the daffodils are blooming so I think it'll clear up soon.

EVA said...

Wonderful choices of colours for your beautiful birds!

Spring here and sounds of birds but not as many sightings as I'd like. But today, while sunny, has a bitterly cold wind.

So great you are "capturing" them!

Tammie said...

Very pretty birds Diana. It should be spring here but we've had some pretty chilly weather along with very gloomy/rainy skies. Although, I kind of like the cold I could do without the rain. I think we're just supposed to be cloudy today though.

Teri C said...

It is beautiful Diana, as is all your work. Good to see spring popping up everywhere.

Hi there! Spring here! Beautiful birds - I have been loving them here - they are so soft and feminine, if that makes sense. I love your Sweet Saturdays too - I have to check that out more carefully. I really LOVE the transition from photo to art below. You are always such an inspiration, thank you! xoxo
