Monday Mix-Up

I’ve been fighting a cold the last 3-4 days. As much as I’ve slept, I should look a lot better–beauty sleep and all.

Looking all cute--check out that BLUE sky, too!

For my next trick, "Look, Ma, no hands!"

Last look at pastels intact. Aren't they pretty?

Goldfinch--wonder if it's molting, or fell prey to a predator.

Did you do anything fun this weekend?

  1. Sorry you’ve been sick. My son had that a couple of weeks ago; it lasted him about 10 days….
    Yes, we went to the beach this weekend. Photos on my blog!


  2. The finch is probably molting – getting spring/ summer colors. The pastels ARE crying out to get outta-the-box!!! And…….. I surely hope you’re better soon!!!! Colds are no fun!


    • Thanks, Pat. I’ve been following Karen Margulis’ blog on pastel painting. In one of her posts she recommended taking a picture of them, and then get them “outta-the-box” as you stated. 🙂


  3. Pretty little nature critters. 🙂
    I like the pastels. You’ll be able to sketch and decorate til your hearts content. I hope you’ll post your creations. (Is it called sketching with pastels?)

    We’re fighting colds here too. We went out in the sunshine this weekend. I couldn’t stay out too long because it’s still a bit chilly for me. My husband tried to till the small garden but it’s still too wet to work it very deep.

    I hope you feel better soon. Sending healing thoughts your way. 🙂


    • Thanks, E.C. From what I’ve read, it is called “painting” with pastels. Sorry to hear the cold bug bit you, too. The sun felt nice, Saturday, when I fed the birds, but the air was a bit nippy yet.


      • Thanks. I wasn’t sure if it was painting or sketching. I’ll remember painting with pastels, it sounds pleasant and soothing. I like that.
        Take care of yourself and try not to over-do and have a relapse.


  4. Those pastels look a little too pristine. Get cracking on making your mistakes and get it over with. Move it, move it, move it missy! The next picture needs to be a lot messier.

    Love seeing the squirrel mafia as always!
