Colorful Bird

One of my last posts I resolved to paint at least 10 minutes a day. Then a sudden death in the family changed that plan. The first week of the year changed our lives and our plans. But, we know that God is in control and we can trust Him completely with our lives and our loved ones.

Needless to say, I've been in a bit of a funk and not in the state of mind to paint. Then, thanks to Nancy at Adventures With Paint I learned of the web site for Robert Burridge, . He is so enthusiastic about painting and shows such a simple way of making something out of nothing that I just had to try it. I threw some watercolor paint on some small pieces of paper and let it dry overnight then I painted with acrylic the negative space around a bird shape. There will be more of these to come, they are way too much fun. Give it a try.


  1. I'm so sorry that you've lost a loved one.
    This part of life is not always easy, but with faith we do live through it..
    As for your paint suggestion, I did see Nancys post. ( We follow each other too.) I must try this it looks like fun...

  2. How sad. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad you have family and faith to help you through.
    Your bird is wonderful! I'll check out the website you listed.
    Take good care.
