Watercolor pencils

Today at the art guild meeting we learned to use watercolor pencils. The pencils were the cheapest from hobby lobby. (Masters art brand). They were easy to use & actually very enjoyable. I was pleased with the way it turned out because I an not very good at traditional watercolors. I am a big fan of watercolor paintings!!!

My guys!

I was asked to enter some oil paintings in the annual spring show coming up in April. I had no idea what to paint. So what better than to combine the 3 things I love! Peter the parakeet, Larry the husband & fishing of course. I like it! Now to work on a serious landscape!

Another hatch announcement

Peter flew away last week! My husband didn’t realize Peter sitting on his head. My husband went outside and Peter flew away. He put up 30 fliers at various places throughout out out small town an miraculously 40 hours later after the rain storm and right before the arctic freeze Peter was found! The night before the breeder we bought Peter from had 4 more 6 week old English Budgies. We purchased another boy we think? We named him Simon. I think Peter thought he was replaced already after seeing the baby bird! My husband is now known around town as the man who lost his bird (he thinks it pretty funny) especially when it’s a stranger who approaches him and asks him if he found his bird.

Peter the English Budgie

This is my little pet Budgie. I needed a portable pet that I could take on trips, low maintenance, and quiet. To my amazement he is a talker who demands constant attention. When he gets a new toy he gets excited & addicted to YouTube.
