The Best Intentions
Gray. Damp. Cold. It’s been a jolt to go from the brilliant warmth of autumn to chill snow-in-the-air November. Still, I was determined to get out and sketch birds today. I filled the bird feeders. Nothing came. I went to the nature center and walked the trails. Few birds appeared. Cold and defeated, I returned home and took consolation in cinnamon buns and coffee. But I couldn’t resist adding this chickadee to the page. I sketched him from an old photo, which made it a bit challenging to get him to sit just right on the rim of the pan. No matter. I realize that my favorite Sundays are filled with baked goods and art…and so I end the day satisfied.
How delightful and what a lovely way to spend your day!
Thanks Valerie. I do enjoy Sunday’s that involve baked goods and painting!
Fantastic Jean. Love the narrative, sentiment and artwork of course!
I feel satisfied myself just looking at your painting. Your icing looks so yummy!
Mmm…it was! Thanks!
