Magic

Magic
5x5 watercolor & ink sketchbook painting

The painting in yesterday's post was referred to as "magical" 
in some of the comments. I don't think the "Girls" meant to spill the beans but "Magic" is this months GJWP theme. 
I'm captivated, this winter, watching the array of birds 
coming to my well stocked feeders and the pair of Cardinals
 is most magical to me. I think of them as my Mama 
visiting me every morning in the guise of her favorite birds ;)
Makes me happy.

Good Morning Mary!... Cardinals never fail to take the "blah" out of winter! Their flash... or dash of red and olive add warmth to the landscape... and my heart!

I love your raucous take today - a glorious and colourful salute to the "bright spots" one can always find in life... if we but look and see them!

Your Momma's close by!

Good Painting!
Warmest regards,
Bruce
