Togetherness /Twosomes at MOO MANIA & MORE

Last year we had 5 little bird babies in our nesting box, but they all died before they were ready to fly. We have been so sad about this. This year again a pair of birds entered the nesting box.
We hope that this year everything will turn out all right! I made a little GOOD LUCK page for them.
It fits  MOO MANIA & MORE with Togetherness / Twosomes.


Watersoluble colored pencils on watercolorpaper


Eine Glücksbringer -Seite für unser neues Vogelpärchen, das in unserem Nistkasten eingezogen ist, letztes Jahr
starben leider alle 5 Vogelbabies bevor sie flügge waren, das war so traurig!
gedacht für  " Paare " auf

Moo Mania  &  more

Since I am addicted to my new 48 set of watersoluble colored pencils I painted another little birdie and a little page with them . / Zwei Übungen hab ich noch mit meinem neuen 48 er Set Aquarellbuntstiften gemacht - bin zur Zeit süchtig danach.


As practice makes perfect,
 I cannot but make progress; each drawing one makes, 
each study one paints, is a step forward. 
 Letter to Theo van Gogh, c.29 October 1883

  14. Gosh, we had the same experience. We lost 4 little baby robins from the nest before they could fly. The whole nest went over and there were no survivors. I keep looking for the Mama bird to come back this year, but I haven't seen her yet. I hope the best for your little birdie family. Beautiful artwork for their well wishes.

  36. Lovely cheeky little birds, and I like the splattering with adds liveliness to the page. We had the same experience once with blue-tits, which we love. My husband was so upset about it that he took the bird house down in case it was in the wrong place.
    I wondered what watercolour pencils you are using. The result is very good.

  47. Your little birds are enchanting, Susi - I do hope the good luck page will work and this year's babies will grow to live long and successful lives. I've missed so much again - just so busy at the moment - but it's wonderful to catch up a little bit.
