good morning starshine
Got some painting done today, which always happies me, but I was doubly exicted when the inspiriation for said painting came and sat outside the window!

This is the painted version of a piece I started at the first EMG sketchfest I got to participate in.

What it looked like when I downed tools tonight.

And here's some better pix of the subjects -

with flash

and without-

This pair have been visiting us several times a day for over a year now.  It went down to one bird only recently, and I was a tad concerned, but then they brought their BABY with them last week.  *glee*  Baby wasn't with them today, which was a bit worrying, but I have to assume all is well there!

Off camera, waiting patiently for the rainbows to finish at the bowls (or else the rainbows will open a can of wup-ass on them!), a couple of crested pigeons. 

I love these guys, they are SO cute! 

Finished a piece recently that was also a sketch from the first sketchfest (prints etc available at zazzle!)-

those are absolutely gorgeous! the birds are adorable!

And what is really odd is that last night I dreamt about you. You were visiting me and I taught you how to eat bacon. In the dream, you Aussies ate bacon in sausage like rolls and you pick them apart to eat them, and you were fascinated by the slab bacon we have here. I taught you to eat BLTs but you didn't like tomatoes. I then took you to the county fair so you could see goats.

Because of your bird posts and videos, we are getting a budgie when we move out of here. Seriously! You converted me, well Pippen did. My daughter and young brother still randomly say "My tiny little Pippin!" Don't worry, we will do lots and lots of research before we get one :) and this is months and months away.
