Feed the Birds

Okay, my game is off (for good reason, another story)
but I did this baaaad sketch because I have to shake it off and that can shift my mojo.

I share the bad stuff so someone starting doesn’t feel badly when they see only good pieces
from artists they compare themselves to and we aaaaall do that, it is human nature.

I love having this memory in my imperfect sketchbook
because it is a nearly daily activity that brings me joy:
“First thing in the studio in the morning I feed the birds by tossing a seed mixture (we mix) onto the roof of the loading dock.  The pidgeons* are waiting on the phone lines, and when the window opens a few circle joyfully in the air.  They feed firs; then crows come and they love the peanuts and bits of rice cakes.  Also, if I am late then the crows raise a racket scolding me for tardiness!  Finally, and lasting until we leave, it is all about the little birds, the junkos and jays and some I don’t yet know names for…”

*Damn I spelled pigeons wrong.

My journal is about art but it is also about memories and
I am so glad I now combine them in one place.
