Norma Wilson Original Oil Yellow Warbler On A Limb

Speak Up!

Fun day painting with my friend, Adele, and a run to my favorite art store, Jerry's Artarama. I picked up a couple of new paint colors. I think it must be similar to a cook finding a new spice and looking forward to trying it in a new dish! Some artists work with a limited palette but I began my art career as a pastel artist and had SO many beautiful colors at my fingertips so I became a bit spoiled. Sometimes it is a fun challenge to work with a limited palette but as a rule.....bring on the rainbow of colors!!
I did get out and cut back the old blooms on my roses and trimmed my rosemary bushes...such a wonderful fragrance! Tomorrow I am going to tackle some more weeds and fertilize. I spied a robin and had my camera in hand on my way out today but didn't quite make it in time. I think I will fill my bird feeders tomorrow. Andrew and I saw a bird taking a bath in our bird bath the other day. They really look like they totally delight in the experience.....the joy of the present moment!

This is such a sweet little warbler and reminds me of my mother who dearly loved her birds. She always kept a bird feeder just outside the kitchen window. Thanks for a good memory triggered by your painting.
