It’s show time…..for a bird that is. I really like to outline my bird pages first, prior to coloring them in. However, I didn’t do the hair because I didn’t want it all black. I also, didn’t outline the spotlight- light in the background because that would’ve made the light an entity and the light isn’t an object, it’s more of an observation.
Picture from my phone and it’s a bit blurry, sorry. If I were to color this gal in again, I would have put her in a Flashy Red Dress, and doodled the heck out of it inside…..(why do i forget that I can embellish the material?) Ugh…next time!
This little bird is really quite flexible….can you imagine having your feet go in one direction then twist your torso around to hold and play a guitar? Wow, very impressive!
Patsy- the Performing Bird…..She’s always been the confident sort of kid growing up. She had all kinds of friends, who were just drawn to her. One day, out of the blue she told her parents she wanted a guitar. For months she quietly taught herself how to play and to sing. She even organized a band with her more musical friends. She doesn’t even get nervous when she plays in front of people, she just enjoys it.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again….I think our talents find us! As long as we have an open mind, a willingness to try new things (even when we’re scared) it’s best to follow the bend of our preferences. I guess I’m lucky, because I was allowed to explore lots of different things growing up….the only expectations were to “do my best”. But kids don’t always have access to the extra-curricular classes they may have wanted to pursue when younger. Sometimes what we enjoy later in life is something that we didn’t have time for earlier in life. Or we weren’t in the right mind-set. So, what are you waiting for? Go out learn what you’ve been dying to try for
Thank God we are not all on stage (or American Idol) as we learn new things!
