Illustration Friday: Urban

Stuck in the juror assembly room all day, I sat in every part of the room, read from the two books I brought, worked on a German lesson, and in the last hour realized that the view fit the Illustration Friday theme.  I used a pen to sketch on the back of the map, then added watercolor pencil at home.

I had to get the ladder out today to get my parrot out of a tree, but that disturbed the curve billed thrasher nesting over the patio.  While she was gone, I took the opportunity to take a picture.  Maybe next year I'll mount a nest-cam.

Saw the mama bird fly out for more bugs and quickly set up the ladder.  They're here!

Egg for Illustration Friday

As I was working on the sketches for this, my daughter informed me that I was drawing a pixie, who must be the guardian of the spotted egg.  I enjoyed painting the poppies, and when I got to the lupines I remembered I used to paint flowers on pottery (in another lifetime).  The totally optional theme for Creative Every Day in March was "Color" and I think it was a good one for me.
