Pearly Bird

6 x 6 oil on canvas, private collection

I have a mother of pearl bird that my mother-in-law brought me from Mexico. It is so delicate and I love the way the light hits it from any angle. I'm a big bird lover anyway so I have several small collectible birds. However, speaking of birds, they have eaten almost all of our grapes we just noticed. That is not a good thing! (for us, -- it's great for them! I hear a very vocal/happy mockingbird out there today - running on grape fructose no doubt) We'll figure something out by the time the next crops sprouts again next year. Maybe we'll need a scarecrow...

So cute!! Going to your new blog...hmmm... If you decide to shut this one down, would you let me know, Camille? I'm usually in such a rush in the a.m.s that I don't have time to do much more than read, comment, and then rush for work. Going to the new blog means changing my link on my own blog and while I don't mind doing that, it is rare for me to get online at night. That all said, I will try to switch from this one to that one if I get on tonight when I get home.

Thanks, Sherry ~ I am already switching over but don't sweat it and you can always click on the link here until you get it sorted out, no problem! :0)
