This Monday Was For The Birds

Monday, June 14, 2010

Today I painted, I painted 2 ATC's both of which were for a WTA (winner takes all). The first was for my friend, Rebecca, she has been getting a lot of my art the past couple months but she doesn't seem to mind. She's a bird watcher and had a list of birds that visit her yard. I chose the goldfinch. 
The second one was for another friend, Brenda, she didn't really give a theme but likes symbols of peace so I did a detail of a Olympic Auditorium (in LA) 1969 New Years Eve concert poster. The original was done by Bonnie MacLean Graham.
You could say I killed 2 birds with one Monday! *snort*
And the songbirds are singing, like they know the score..........................at the Shores
