|"Rejoice," a happy robin, 5 x 7 140 lb watercolor|
It's been fun, challenging and productive, even if I don't always follow the suggested prompts.
It may not happen this year after looking at the 31 prompts, but at least it's worth a try to start the month off right.
I like the ideas of the prompts because they stretch my imagination.
After sitting on the back porch this afternoon in this heat, I get to watch birds of all kinds seeking shade, coolness and food and water.
A favorite of mine is a large robin who frequents the bird bath only 15 feet from me. He'll come down, perch on the rim, look around, take a sip, and then jump in, giving himself quite a bath. Then he gets back on the rim, fluffs his feathers, looks around, taking his time.
To me, I think he's thankful for the peaceful back yard and cool water. He's rejoicing.
