September Challenge Day 27

I mentioned to a friend that I was running out of ideas for the last few days of the challenge: not everything works well in pen & ink. I have been looking through my photo records to see what strikes my fancy.  Today's card is based on a watercolor painting I did a number of years ago.
Pine Perch
I believe the bird is a Pine Siskin but I can not remember what I used for a reference. A number of these little birds spent a lot of time here this summer devouring the sunflower seeds we provide. As they are messy eaters, the squirrels and turkeys were able to feast on the ground under the feeders.

I am happy that I finally have a bit of time to check out all the wonderful art and artists that are participating in this 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I have found a number of artists to follow through blogs and Facebook pages. I hope you will take some time and check some out too.

One of these days I will figure out how to share the link to Leslie's page without using the URL - I promise, Sheila!


  1. LOL, so much to learn, and so little time my friend. You should see how long my list is! This is so lovely Val, and I really love your pine needles....Perfect!

    1. Lists? you have lists? Sheila you are too organized!. Thanks for the comment on this card - the pine needles were harder to do than the bird so there are not as many as there should have been.
