Sunday Sketching - Is Spring Here?

Time for Sunday Sketching with Blue Chair Dairy! I have been longing for Spring and there are some signs of it. But the ONE, the most important sign that Spring is here for me, is my first robin sighting. While I haven't seen one myself (my house and lawn are always the last to lose their snow), I have heard others say they have seen robins.  So for Sunday Sketches, I did this:

(final version)

(preliminary pencil sketch)

Maybe it might bring a robin to my house sooner! I still have some berries even if no worms may yet be accessible! And I think it is also time for my snowman to melt away until next year, so I am also making this my new header.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's sketching efforts!

  1. In Virginia there are robins everywhere! Yesterday when I went to take the dog out, one of them dive bombed my head like a scene from "The Birds!" Like you little robin with the rain boots on though! :-)

  3. Oh I opened this and thought love the new header! It has such personality! Yes we have seen Robins and i have heard Geese arriving back (though here they must think they are a month early) and the early morning spring call of the Varigated Thrush which too me means despite the chill spring is sneaking in! This Robin is cheeky, and so they are, I love his boots!

  11. Oh my gosh! Eva I love this new piece and love that you are using it for your header! I missed your paint party Friday - I don't do much with paint, but actually took some out to play with Friday, and had other things come up! Will be out of town next friday, but hopefully able to join in the friday after that! Looks like a great group!

    Thanks so much for your nice comment over at my place! You introduced me to zendoodles and I continue to use the doodling techniques I find in zen doodles in my current pieces. Thanks for all the inspiration!

    (I love his wee boots the best!)
