I got such a kick out of the concept the first time I heard of “Draw a Bird Day.” I found the whimsy irresistible. Jinx of Brother Love — a Crossroad would approve. You can read the sweetly sentimental story behind the day by clicking Draw a Bird Day.
The website says “You can also celebrate Draw A Bird Day by drawing a picture of a bird. The picture shouldn’t be professional, especially, if you’re not so talented. Share this picture with anyone, who is important to you.”
All of you are important to me, so I’m sharing my silly bird. My skills as an artist are less than mediocre, but I participate just to enjoy the flight of fancy. I didn’t try to draw Jinx from Brother Love or Cracker the parrot from Murder at the Bijou. I couldn’t have done either of them justice. Instead, here’s my quick sketch drawn with markers, of a funky flamingo.
I invite everyone to come out to play and post your drawing on Facebook or in a blog post. Just be sure to tag me so that I don’t miss it.
Purely by coincidence, Kirt Tisdale recently did a post of an Inspirational Flamingo Family. Click over and check out his lovely work.
I’ll see you at the river again next Saturday, for another chapter of The Delta Pearl! Hugs on the wing.
