This one I called Deep Rose. It is for my sweet grand- daughter. She asked for a deep dark rose.
I chose an iris for my daughter-in-law who is beautiful, tall and elegant, so I called it Elegant Iris.
The bird is a song sparrow, one of whom has been frequenting our birder feeder a lot. I enjoy drawing birds and will probably do more soon. The Orioles are on their way back and we are putting out grape jelly to encourage them. They LOVE grape jelly -- and so do humming birds.
A song sparrow has a loud insistent song and competes with the house finch in our area to dominate the spring-time singing.
I have also done some more tangles. I find these good to get my hand back in to do more drawing after not having done much for a while. The colors, the balance and the detailed lines help me to regroup my talent and my 'drawing eye'.
These first two are more conventional but the third one below is a little more complicated and marks a new direction for me to do these tangles on colored paper, so that I can leave some areas uncolored.
I did this one on yellow card, but the scan didn't bring out the yellow enough. Still, I like doing this kind of tangle rather than those that give me definitive lines, it gives me more avenues for creativity.
