I’ve always wanted to paint something special for my blog header. I’ve always imagined a smorgasbord of all the little things I love, but whenever I put them all together it ends up looking “muddy.” (as my set design professor used to say). Today I painted this little bird among a few other things…leaves, a moth, pussy willows, fireflies…but in the end I singled him out and stuck him in his place. And what do you know? Somehow he was all I needed for my blog to feel complete.
He’s the one with a huge song with seemingly never ending notes I was talking about in my winter wren post. Pretty perfect for a long winded blog, don’t you think?
