Did you know that the Bearded vulture, like the flamingo, turns pink because of is diet? In this case though, it is bones rather than brine shrimp that cause the color. #PostcardsForTheLunchBag #DanielSmithArtistMaterials @Hahnemühle_USA #ZebraPen_USA #ZebraAmbassador View
For our prompt of “Dance” today, I thought about a couple of polar bears dancing the night away with a bit of aurora mood lighting. Yeah, that’s pretty much how my mind works. In truth, I also wanted to try
Dancing. Ugh! It was ruined for me during high school. Two weeks a year, gym became dancing class. I was clumsy, incredibly shy, and have absolutely no sense of rhythm. The classes were run like a competition, the gym teachers making them as much like a sport as possible, and yelling at you if you weren’t scoring the goals. I hated sports, too, so double whammy. They were always just before Christmas, and for years, afterward, I couldn’t hear ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ without cringing and getting sick to the stomach.
Polar bears, one of my most favorite animals and these two look marvelous!!! Dancing always seems like such a joyous activity. My maternal grandma used to sit at her piano pounding out a tune, jump up, grab one of us kids and dance us around her small living room; singing and laughing the whole time. Special memory.
What I wouldn’t give to be able to dance! I have a photo of Joe and me dancing at our wedding. We look so happy. It’s one of my favorites. That old saying, dance as if no one is watching fits here. I think everyone feels self conscious. That means they aren’t paying attention to you, just to themselves. If you can paint, you can dance!
