Life is a Bird....

It will fly away before you have a chance to stop and enjoy how beautiful it is.
This whimsical bird head started as a pencil drawing....

then got colored in black marker and pencil and cut-out (then scanned again)

and lastly the collagewhere I tried to show how life pulls us in very different directions as we grow.

A dream come true

I had admired orchids for a few years now but lately they became so popular and widely available that I wanted to get one. What do you know, a few weeks ago I received a lovely one with white petals & fuschia in the centers. I wanted to keep it in the bedroom but read that it's best to grow at an Eastern window, so it had to stay in the Living Room.

Here's a recent drawing of my new obsession:

Obviously, my drawing skills need improvement... so let me keep practicing and we'll see.
