Oh, what a dreary March day it is, drizzly with snow coming later today.

I’m done with the inking on my parrot drawing, and have been working on the color, putting down layers of watercolors, and putting in some gouache highlights. I’m liking it a little bit more, I think the gouache is doing the trick.

Every cold wave for the past month and a half, I say ‘This has to be the last one, it has to start warming up!’ The sun was kind of shining yesterday, and I so wanted to get outside and play in the dirt with my bobcat, but with everything still covered in snow and a frigid NW wind, it didn’t happen. It’s 6° right now, and that NW wind is still blowing. So very, very, very tired of winter.

I’ve been playing with a new style of beads. I think I’ll try putting some murrini on the next one I make.
My parrot drawing is progressing. As usual, I’m not entirely happy with the progress. Maybe after a few more watercolor washes to pop the color I’ll like it better.
And a little humor for the day,

Spring is coming! It may be -3°, but I hear geese down at the river.
