Who Doesn’t Like Pretty Birds?: Daily Art Practice
It’s March already and I am beginning to see and hear signs of spring. Birds are chirping and we have had a few days of temperatures in the mid 60’s! I am ready for color to return to the landscape. Speaking of birds, I saw a lot of beautiful birds in Florida. I caught this picture from the window of the lanai while visiting my grandmother. From what we could tell, it looks like a Little Blue Heron. They are different colors depending on what state of development they are in. The bird on the right that is slightly blurry is just a statue.
I am sharing two Japanese shopfronts today. The first one is a Soba restaurant, Kunimatsu. Reference photo HERE. I could not find an online menu. I think this is common for a lot of the smaller shops in Japan. Or perhaps I just don’t know where to look online. When choosing a photo to paint, I was drawn to this one because I loved the tile roof as well as the various tiles on the exterior. And all those plants!!
Kizushi is a Japanese sushi restaurant that I found on Storefronts.Japan on Instagram. I looked for a menu but was unable to find a website. The reference photo HERE is beautiful and is the most saved photo on this Instagram page. I really enjoyed painting all the textures on this building.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is one that has become a favorite. I scored this delicious Bengal Spice Tea today for $1 a box at our local Sharp Shopper. I stocked up with 6 boxes. I don’t shop there often as most of their products are pre-packaged but sometimes one can score a good deal. Today was my day.
Happy Tea Day,
