Sunshine, birds, and a birthday

Happy face sunshine rocks and colorful little birds. More art for the 4H Artisans Show coming up in March.

These painted Sunshine Rocks can be used in the garden, or outside on a picnic table to hold down napkins. They make pretty paperweights.



The Little Birds,on wires can be placed in a flower pot for a bit of colorful whimsy.



A chickadee painted on wood.




And a wooden Cardinal Birdhouse to hang outside in the tree.




Some of these items will be listed on my etsy shop as well, so be sure to check it out.


And, today is my birthday.

I'm enjoying it painting away the hours......and painting two of my favorite things ~ birds and sunshine!

Have a great day!

An Aquarian! Here's your horoscope for the day:

Your easy social energy makes it easy for you to make new friends today. It's one of those days when you can really see the best in people and that makes you want to get to know them better.

Hap-py, Hap-py Birthday, Don-na ... I'm singing to you, Girlie!! Is there no better way to spend the day but to paint?? We must be on the same wavelength - - I've been painting amuck too! In fact, your birdies inspired one of my illustrations ... I haven't shared it yet, but will do so shortly! :)

Just diggin' that sunshine and the tweets!

Enjoy the day that God has made for you!

Hi Donna,

Happy Birthday and happy painting.
I just ordered your adorable bluebirds for my garden and look forward to their arrival. I am sure they will enjoy nesting in sunny California.
