Elephants are Faithful

This is my tribute to Dr. Suess and Horton Hatches the Egg. I read this book to my kids, my grandkids, and even a few nieces and nephews. If only we could all follow his example.

Maysie is a party bird. It’s a darn good thing Horton was there.

Sea Monster and Friends

Everyone has heard of the Lockness Monster. This is not him. This creature is friendly, and gives tired birds a ride until they can continue their journey. If someone spots him –  the birds are on their own.

Two Bird Bird Nest

My sister and brother-in-law love to watch the birds. They have a courtyard with bird feeders and flowering plants all about. When I see them sitting in their comfortable chairs on this patio, I think they are the birds, and their personal piece of paradise is the nest.

Mechanical Bird Series 3

This piece is the third in a series of five. Birds are known for their song – this contraption is no exception. Wind it up and hear it sing.

If you ‘Like’ this one, the best are yet to come.

Mechanical Bird Series 2

This is the second drawing in my series. He is about to take-off, so be prepared to duck.

I really enjoyed creating this series. The bright colors and crisp lines, combined with the mechanical aspects, made for an interesting project.

Mechanical Bird Series

I have always had an affinity for all things mechanical. I’ve hung both aluminum and vinyl siding on houses. I’ve worked in a cabinet shop. I have built houses. I was a commercial electrician for twenty-three years. Because of my varied life experience, many things catch my interest. Steampunk machines fascinate me.

This is the first piece in a series of five original mechanical birds. I will post more as time goes by. Wind it up and watch it fly.
