Wow - I'm amazed I remembered any French at all. I only took 6 years of it!! I figured the best therapy for my addled brain and exhausted spirit was to make a happy, silly bird. His beret is a bit funky but I didn't look at any pictures. If not a beret - well then a yarmulke! I worked all day on this one (with a few breaks) because I had prepared the canvas before I left for NY. I have sold one of my birds in a local gallery and tomorrow is the Art Walk in town - so I wanted to get at least one more in there. I'm linking to Paint Party Friday - go and check the fabulous artists participating. Thanks for visiting with me.
