They are for the birds..

A found soft pastels on super clearance at Joann’s last week. In fact, if you have a “supercenter” Joann’s near you, you will be pleasantly surprised to find a boat load of fine art supplies on super clearance. Sad, because the future of fine art supplies is up in the air until we figure out what they’re doing, but good for the time being as far as your wallet goes.

Anyway, this is the first time I have drawn anything in my life. It was fun! The cockatoo on the vertical paper is “Rikki”. Still alive today, I think we got him when I was around 12 or 13 years old. I like that drawing the best…I should be able to come up with a rudimentary drawing of a cockatoo considering how long I have been able to look at one up close and personal.

Glad I bought the pastels.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I love them all, but my favorite is the sad looking one on the right.

Way cool. My favorite is the one with the big flower. I like the bird because his hair looks like mine.

Julie, you surprised me :) I like your drawings! It's early in the morning here, and the birds are singing in the garden...
What are you going to do with them?
