Woodswallows bird art

While I was away, an email arrived from Laure' Felita.  I've long enjoyed reading Laure's posts on her Painted Thoughts Blog.  If you have a smidgin' of drawing, sketching or painting in you, you're sure to find this blog inspirational.

Last month I shared this post,  a row of White-breasted Woodswallows, showing more and more little Woodswallows, joining the queue.  Within a comment on Laure's blog I offered her the challenge of painting them some time.

Her response was immediate and enthusiastic .... and here's how Laure' has portrayed the sweet little birds in watercolour.

Thanks again Laure', I'm always admiring your artwork and really appreciate you taking time out to create this lovely art with your paintbrush.

I've just jumped over to Laure's blog and see she has written up a post telling all re the process of this art.  Read it on Artistic License, Colorful Black and (Erk!) Ink Blobs  You already know it has a happy ending.

That's great. Thanks for sending me over there to Laure's blog for a look. I need some motivation myself to get back to it since coming home.
