Birds Like...

Try as hard as I might I was unable to photograph the transparency without a glare. It didn't dawn on me to scan it in and now it is already packed to send to a blogging friend for a swap. I didn't post the entire piece. It is on an 8x10 canvas board.
The last few days passed quickly and here it is, a glorious day without a single plan save for Olivia's exercise class this evening. My hopes are to decorate for Easter and read lots of books with Olivia and have a great time just being together, sitting and listening to the songs of the birds in the trees.

Everyone Sang

Everyone suddenly burst out singing;

And I was filled with such delight

As prisoned birds must find in freedom,

Winging wildly across the white

Orchards and dark-green fields;

on - on - and out of sight.

----Siegfried Sassoon

If you are a fan of smoothies you are simply guaranteed to enjoy this one. I just had to share this recipe-It is the "Eye-Opener Smoothie" found in this book of Olivia's and oh boy is it good!

Mix 1 cup orange juice, 1 banana, and 1 tablespoon honey in a blender. With blender running, remove plastic spout (but keep on lid) and add 1 cup frozen strawberries a few at a time, blending until smooth.

I love your artwork, and that smoothie looks and sounds great. I have been wanting to do some art like that, but don't know how...I need to learn, I want so badly to make things, I just need to start and try. Thank you for being an inspiration :o)
