For The Robins
I heard a sweet song while sitting at my desk last week. I looked up and saw this...a robin, perched in the dead plants that hung in my window box all winter.
The robin sang a song to me that said "I flew all the way from Florida for this?!"
I knew I could do better.
I went to the garden center, bought some pansies, and got to work making the yard look like spring.
My German grandmother loved pansies for their sweet "faces" that welcomed spring. I was inspired to pull out my watercolors and capture those sweet faces.
Graphite pencil to Strathmore deckle edged card. Watercolor paint to paper.
A pure process.
I am most pleased.
