Beautiful December day



Today was an absoulute beautiful sunny day and my youngest daughter and I took advantage and went on a long walk. We came upon this bird standing beside the roadway soaking up the sun. I just had to take his picture....maybe an inspiration for a future Halloween character.....

After the holidays, I'll be back in the studio to finish my valentine pieces for the SpookyTimeJingles.com update....a "Love Bug" and a "Queen of Hearts" are in progress. I'll post some pictures soon.

Hi Marie!
Wow, what a great picture. He looks like a blue heron. They used to walk in the mud and then walk all over our patio when I was a kid. Their feet are huge!!!

Happy New Year to you!!

Hi Marie, That bird is wonderful. He almost looks not real. He would make a wonderful Halloween piece. Maybe something hanging out of his mouth from that long beek.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday. Sorry I didn't get over sooner to wish you a happy one. It has been crazy in my world. But things are slowly getting back to normal.
