Day 17: Happy St Patrick’s day🍀 I’m posting today’s painting a little earlier because I didn’t have to go out to find my subject, my subject found to me.
I’m a morning person. Actually, I’m not just a morning person, I am a very early morning person. My favorite time of the day is before the sunrise, when I’ll sit in the dark with a cup of coffee and listen to the silence.￼ Every morning the silence of the night is broken when the first bird sings. I’ll usually take note of the time. It amazes me to witness the inner clock that wildlife is given. The first song of the day differs by only one to two minutes from day to day. After the first bird sings that song, the wooded areas that surround my house, erupt in a symphony of song. It recharges me and at the same time makes me feel extremely blessed.
Every year two geese always come and visit my pond. This morning I was sitting at my drafting table, which faces my pond and noticed that my two visitors had returned. I know they are messy birds and a little vocal, but these two have always been polite. This morning I simply sat at my drafting table and painted natures visitors on the other side of my window.
