Welcome to a brand new month and a new art challenge celebrating our beautiful world! When I started painting and sketching I referred to these as Doodlewash adventures as I have no idea what I’ll make next and
If hummingbirds don’t come in these colors, they should! I’m like you – when I was young I worked at the information desk for a medical laboratory. It was a job I hated, and I’ve disliked talking on the phone ever since.
They are fabulous Charlie! I hope the cake is scrumptious! I’m spoiled as I got dinner out two nights in a row. Last night was to celebrate landing a three month exhibit starting in March. Tonight was because I sold a painting before I finished hanging the exhibit that will be up for the month of February. I loved the picture that sold and it is going to a young new collector of art. She loves barns and this one is based on a photo that a friend’s daughter took in Colorado. Feeling good tonight.
A few years ago my up the hill neighbors invited me into their back yard to see the hummingbird nest that they had discovered in one of their pine trees. It was so tiny and maybe 10 feet up that it was hard to see. But when I finally spotted it, I was thrilled to see two tiny heads just poking out of the nest. I went up to visit them every day until one day, they were gone. It doesn’t take them long to grow up! I was thrilled to have lots of photos from that magical time.
All so pretty! Who cares if the colors are correct or not. Most people don’t know. We have a few hummingbirds that frequent our yard in the summer and well into Fall. We have two rather large hardy fuchsia bushes that they love. Luckily one is right next to the patio so we get to see them up close a lot. I had to try to nurse one that our cat had gotten and brought into the house. I fed it with a syringe for an entire day. Unfortunately the next day it didn’t make it. It was pretty cool to be able to hold it and really get to see it. I was so upset with our cat. (You have to hand it to her for being able to catch it however.)
Yes! We got the pan for le gâteau! 😃💕Philippe also calls it baba au rhum and we had a tray with several little ones, but not a larger one. 😉 I can read French, but can’t write in it yet. And, I’ll take whipped cream and fruit any day! Love! As for comments, if you check the box, it’s supposed to send a note that I replied, so hopefully it works this time!
