Draw A Bird Day

So, I heard that the 8th of each month is “Draw a Bird Day” – and although my own creative captures remain courtesy of Canon, my daughter has spent her college break playing around with some acrylic paints she got for Christmas.

Here are four birds she painted from my Flicker photos.


Can I just tell you how much this makes me smile!
She heads back Monday and I am going to miss her,  so say a prayer for me. 🙂

    Your photos are very inspirational and these are great interpretations…I’ll be sure to remember to link them to the DABD summary next week.
    My daughter has one more week off…always sad when the absence settles in again. (K)
