I am one of those that hates drawing trees. I think my limbs always look bad and leaves, forget about it! I would do many more buildings and landscape sketches if it weren't for having to draw the trees and bushes. lol. Somehow this one worked out very well and I am thrilled with it! Please also keep in mind that I worked on this at work in between all of the phone calls today. We were understaffed and somewhat busy, but I am grateful that there were no major catastrophes this weekend and I only received one call. A new girl didn't know she was on the schedule yesterday and I had to call her in. No biggie. :)
Baby bird seems to be doing a little better today. I had to splint her leg again, the first one fell off so I waited until my wonderful boyfriend was in bed so he didn't freak out ( I handle ers much better than he does, remind me to tell you about the day I cut off part of my fingertip with a rotary cutter.) I think she may have been in shock yesterday as she was very listless. Today she is back to her feisty self and biting us when we try to hold her. Have no fear, it's not because she is in pain, she always bites us when we try to hold her, except for yesterday. She still can't use her foot and she may never be able to but the fact that she's eating, preening, interacting with the other birds and moving around a little bit makes me think she's going to be ok in the long run. She's a very strong and brave little bird.
Don't forget to visit all of the wonderful artists participating in Sunday Sketches hosted by the wonderful Sophia over at Blue Chair Diary.
