It seems to me…
… there’s a book in this wonderful place where I live. There are some great characters living here and if I write it, I’ll call it Life at the Home… Stay tuned for that.
For you bird lovers… and I know that many of you are because you tune into Bird TV everyday. Anyway, we discovered there are a couple of crows nests in the tree out front (this painting is not a crow… MOL) and there were hatched egg shells on the ground. Did you know their eggs look very similar to robins’ eggs, just a whole lot bigger?
No pics of the babies or anything. But, next year, We’ll watch for them.
In class this week…
… painted a picture of turtle hatchlings stumbling over each other on their race from the nest to the ocean. I’m hoping to show it to you next week. It still needs more work and my little turtles sadly looked more like cockroaches than turtles. They will magically transform themselves into cute, scurrying turtles this week… at least I hope they do.
I’m taking acrylic painting with Frits Van Eeden. He just returned from the Netherlands where he lives part of the year. He had a great show there of 50 of his paintings. Here’s a video if you’re interested…. It’s in his first language, but thought you might enjoy the art.
The Helpful Blogger update…
…next week (Friday), I’ll be posting my first book giveaway on TheHelpfulBlogger.com
