Starzia and I woke up this morning.....well let me rephrase!!!!
Starzia woke up first, as she always does, and started making lots of loud wake up noises.
(She used this strategy because I told her that I didn't enjoy being jumped on to get me out of my dream state!!)
Anyway it was a much more pleasant way to wake up....so we both agreed, in a more amicable state that it was time to get up and organise some breakfast.
While I was putting my coffee percolator together I looked out the window and saw these gorgeous birds.
So we both ran outside and started taking some snaps.
A "happy accident" snap.
A "lucky it was in focus" snap!
A "bird on the wire" snap!!
A "2 in 1 snap!!" Love it:)
So we had a lovely start to the day.
It was so nice that we decided to have breakfast outside.
Pancakes with greek yoghurt, banana and maple syrup!!! And coffee for me of course:)
Then we did a little more face painting......... because why not!!!!
Then I finished my own little bird painting. Well not little....... and it took ages because of all the detail!!!
Very colourful....but I love it!!!
This work was inspired by my Salt Dish Peace tree commission.....
just adding colour and lots of it!!!!!
This is a close up of the centre!!!
Then because I have the Handmade Markets tomorrow I finished off some of my small canvases after dinner. Starzia joined me and watched, then mimicked some of my painting strokes to copy a flower painting I did.
Just amazing to see and watch.
She has such incredible control over a paint brush!!!!!!
My girl and a tree.
Our joint effort for the night. :)
Well my shoulders feel like they are on fire and my foot is going to sleep and I have markets tomorrow.....so time to go horizontal!!!!!!!
Hope you like all of the above.
Wish me luck tomorrow and I will write and share the day with you.......probably on Sun:)
Skye:) and Starz*
