All my work this week has been related to nature.We kept on weeding last weekend, and luckily we're almost finished. Just one more flowerbed remains, but the rain came and now it has to dry up a bit.
All year around we have magpies in our garden. I think they are bautiful birds dressed in white tie and tails. They always seems so happy except when they're arguing.
This week we've had four or five of them in the garden and they got me thinking of my paternal grandma. She was born in 1891, and she didn't like the magpies at all. It was something old I believe, about the magpies came just for stealing.
The funniest thing she said though, was that if one had magpies in the garden and they became noisy, one would have visitors to the home before the day ended. My grandma had lots of storys to tell, she died in 1995, 104 years old.
I made some other birds as well this week. I saw the idea over at Stefanie's blog and couldn't resist making some.
Cool and happy birds, lovely for decorating and lots of other stuff. I might be back with some ideas later on.
I also tried my hand on making a landscape, using pan pastels. It isn't the worst I've made, but I need alot of practice to be good at it.
It's made on black paper, and I had to add more light to it in picasa. Well, that's about it.
Happy Friday Sketches and PPF everyone, and thank you for all your lovely comments. It's a thrill to read them all.
