Illustration Friday: Seasons I like to draw birds. Coloring them in is kind of theraputic, much like graph paper used to be for me in high school. They all start out pretty much the same, but then a little color, a little detail here and there transforms them into unique creatures. I want to sew birdie-shaped pillows, fit them together to make a tesselated pattern for material, have them march along in a border for the twins' room. Maybe sew stuffed animals - a whole bunch of different colored ones. They're just fun for me and a way to jump-start my imagination. (Plus, it's hard to mess them up!) There's no wrong way to paint a bird. You can see more birds here (scroll to the very bottom) and here and here.
