Bookish Birds

Still birds on the brain.  Been drawing chickens all day :)
Here's a little chicken wander-doodle- for fun.
All of you are so good at making up little stories for my drawings...
so I'm looking forward to what you come up with for this (whether you do or not,
I appreciate your stopping by)!

  2. My husband read to our dyslexic son every night so he could keep up with his peers and the Harry Potter series. This reminded me of the time he was wondering if Son was ready for The Lord of the Rings...

  11. Have I ever told you that I live with forty five chickens? (It WAS sixty until November when those scraggly ones....well, never mind. =( ) Life with chickens is a funny thing - I always wonder where they're hurrying off to. There's a whole social world - right out our front door - in our yard. I have pics to show you....I'll get to it. ;)

  15. A pair of chickens idly sit
    And gobble up a book.
    They read so that their birdie-brains
    Are bigger than they look!

  21. Birds really are wonderfully fun to draw. Been doing plenty of bird-doodling myself of late. (And chickens are somehow particularly fun.)

  25. "All these books son and no-one can still say what came first, the chicken or the egg!"

    Lovely image, I too like drawing birds, they seem to have lots of flowing bits to draw and I like flowing bits...
