Last Two Days

So far so good with me trying to do a little something each day.

Thursday, Jan 18 -  a building near me that calls out to me every time I pass by it.    I love the shape and the color of it.

3.5 x 5.5 Beta Journal and Platinum Carbon desk pen with Lexy Gray ink.



Friday, Jan 19 - Umbrella at Disney Springs.  I chose this to practice folds.

3.5 x 5.5 Beta FINAL page and mechanical pencil.  No ink with this one.  Used a flat to add the simple color wash

Another Hummingbird

This one is from a photo I took in 2011 when we were living in a mobile home up on the hill sitting on my eldest son's property.  We lived there until the only other house up there went up for sale and we purchased it.

We had scores of hummingbirds up there and was such a joy to sit out and watch for hours.  This guy was actually sitting on the rail of one of the feeders but I chose to replace it with a branch.

An Exciting Moment and Memory

There is nothing like the feeling of one of these little jewels sitting on one's finger. 

I sat for some time with my arm resting on the deck railing and hand up against the feeder hoping one would land on my finger.  A couple hummers would fly down but go to one of the other openings.  This guy was unsure of me at first flying down, taking a drink, and then hovering back in the air above my hand.  He finally decided I was not a threat and sat on my finger.   What a neat experience that was!!!!
